A circle is a geometrical figure in a plane whose points are equidistant from a fixed point. The fixed point is the center of the circle. The closed path traced by a point that keeps its distance from the fixed center is a circle. The distance from the center is the radius of the circle.

In our day-to-day life, we observe and use some objects which are circular in shape. For example, wheel of a car, bangle, clock, button, plate, coin, etc. We notice that the second's hand of the watch goes rapidly in a round path. The path traced by the tip of the second's hand is a circle. We use circular bodies in a variety of ways.

Put a coin on a piece of paper and press it with the left thumb in the middle. Now, move a pencil around the coin. Remove the coin and notice the closed curved line. The traced line is a **circle**.

A pencil compass is used to draw a circle precisely. Put its pointed leg on a point on a sheet of paper. Open the other leg to some distance. Keeping the pointed leg fixed, rotate the other leg through one revolution. The closed figure traced by the pencil on paper as shown in the picture is a circle. So, we can draw a circle at a fixed distance from a fixed point. The fixed point is called the center of the circle and the fixed distance is called the radius of the circle.

An arc is the piece of the circle between any two points of the circle. Look at the pieces of the circle between two points A and B in the figure. We find that there are two pieces, one comparatively larger and the other smaller. The larger one is called the major arc and the smaller one is called the minor arc.

In the above figure, a circle is drawn with the center at __ O__. Taking any two points

Taking two points * Y, Z* on two sides of the chord, and then we get two parts is

**The joining line segment at any two points of a circle is the chord of the circle. Each chord divides a circle into two arcs.**

In the figure, such chord __ AB __of a circle is drawn which passes through the center at

The arcs made by the diameter __ AB __are equal; they are known as a semi-circle. Any chord that

**Obviously, the diameter is twice the radius.**

The complete length of the circle is called its circumference. That means, starting from a point* P*, the distance covered along the circle until you reach point

The circle is not a straight line, so its circumference cannot be measured with a ruler. We can apply an easy trick to measure the circumference, draw a Circle on art paper and cut along the circle. Mark a point on the circumference. Now, draw a line segment on paper and put the circle in an upright position so that the marked point can coincide with the endpoint of the line segment.

Now roll the circle along the line segment until the marked point touches the line segment again. Locate the touching point and measure the length from the other end of the line segment. This is the length of the circumference.

Observe that the diameter of a small circle is small; so is the circumference. On the other hand, the diameter of a larger circle is large, the circumference is also larger.

The length of a circle is called its circumference. Let, r be the radius of a circle, its** c= 2πr**, where 3.14159265••• which is an irrational number. Value of 3.1416 is used as the approximate, Therefore, if the radius of a circle is known, we can find the approximate value of the circumference of the circle by using the value of Example 18. The diameter of a circle is 26 cm. Find its circumference.

Let us see if there is any relationship between the diameter and the circumference of circles. The ratio of the circumference and the diameter of a circle is constant. This ratio is denoted by the Greek letter π (PI).

Thus, if the circumference and the diameter are denoted by c and d respectively, we can say that the ratio is

c ⁄ d = π

c = πd

We know that diameter (d) of a circle is twice the radius (r) i.e., d = 2r; Therefore, 2r. Since ancient times mathematicians put effort into the evaluation of approximately. Indian mathematician Arya Bhatta (476-550 AD) estimated (PI) as 62832/20000 which is approximately 3.1416. Mathematician Sreenibash Ramanujan (1887-1920) estimated PI correct to million places after the decimal. Exactly speaking, PI is an irrational number. In our day-to-day life, we approximate use PI by 22/7

**Example 1.** The diameter of a circle is 10 cm. What is the circumference of the circle?

**Solution: **

Diameter of the circle, d = 10 cm

Circumference of the circle = **πd**

= 3.14 x 10 cm

=314 cm

**Example 2.** What is the circumference of the circle with a radius of 14 cm?

**Solution: **

The radius of the circle, r = 14 cm

Circumference of the circle = 2**π**r

Therefore, the circumference of the circle is 88 (2 x 3.14 x 14 ) cm.

The area of the region in a plane bounded by a circle is known as the circular region.

Area of the circle = (Half of the circumference) x radius

Area of the circle = 1 ⁄ 2 x 2 π r x r

Area of the circle = π r²

**Example.** What is the area of a circular garden of diameter 9.8 m?

**Solution: **

The diameter of the circular garden, d = 9.8 m

The radius of the circular garden, r = 9.8 ⁄ 2 = 4.9 m

Area of the circular garden = π r 2 = 3.14 x 4.9 x 4.9 = 75.39 square metre

The basic formula to calculate the area of a circle is:

Area of the circle = π r², where r is the radius of the circle.

**Solution: **The diameter of the circle, d= 1.5 inch

The radius of the circle, r= d/2 = 1.5 / 2 = 0.75 inch

The area of the circle = π r² = 1.76715 square inches (π = 3,1416)

**Solution: **The diameter of the circle, d= 20cm

The radius of the circle, r= d/2 = 20 / 2 = 10cm

The area of the circle = π r² = 314.16 square centimeters

In geometrical term, the radius is the line segments from the centre to the perimeter of the circle.
