# What is a straight line through the center of a circle from one end to the other?

It is called the diameter. The line that goes halfway through
the circle is the radius.

The length of a straight line through the center of a circle is
called the diameter. Any other object I'm not sure has a name;
perhaps the length...width...or height

### What is the diameter and radius of a circle?

Diameter: A straight line segment that does not bend that passes through the center of a circle and terminates at the circle's edges 180 degrees apart from each other. Radius: A straight line segment that does not bend that starts at the center of a circle and terminates at any of the circle's edges.

### What are diameters in a circle?

The diameter of a circle is the distance from one side of the circle to the other side by a straight line going through the center point of the circle. The longest distance between any two points on a circle. One-half of the diameter is the radius. That is the distance from the center of the circle to any point on the circle by a straight line. The square of the radius (the radius times…

### What is a straight line through a circle not going through the middle?

a chord. i took geometry this year. here are some other things that way help. Circle- a set of points that are equidistant from the center of the circle Diameter- a line segment that passes through the center point and has its endpoints on the circle. Radius- a line segment that connects from the center point to the circle Chord- a line segment that has its endpoints on the circle. Arc- a section of the…

### Is the distance around a circle called the radius?

No, the distance around a circle is called the circumference. The radius is the distance from the exact center of the circle to the edge of the circle and is one half of the diameter. The diameter is one straight line passing through the center of the circle from one end to the other. The circumference can be determined from the following equation: C = pi * d or C = 2*pi*r

### What is the distance across a circle through the center called?

it is called a diameter. The diameter ! I think this answers your question: A segment whose end points both rest on the same circle and which passes through the center of the same circle is called the circle's diameter. a line from the edge of a circle through the center to the other side is the diameter Radius Diameter

### What does the term diameter of a circle mean?

Diameter of a circle is a line that goes from one side of the circle, passes through the center of the circle, and touches the other side of the circle. So a circle could have a diameter of length 2 inches, or maybe 7 feet, etc. If the line does not pass through the center of the circle, it is not a diameter.

### What is the length of 27 inches in diameter?

Wait, what? I believe diameter is the measurement straight across the middle of a circle, not a unit of measurement. So if a circle were to be 27 inches in diameter, it would be 27 inches from one side of the circle to the other, with the line going exactly through the center of the circle. Basically, cutting the circle in half.

### What is a cord that is drawn from the center of a circle?

A cord that crosses the center of a circle is a diameter, which divides the circle into two equal halves. It is a line segment, and it is the longest cord that can be drawn within a circle. However, if the segment begins at the center rather than crosses through it, and has the other endpoint on the circumference of the circle, it is not a cord, but is a radius of that circle.

### How is diameter measured?

Let us assume you have a circle drawn with the center identified. Then draw one straight line through the center. Measure the length of the line bound by the intercepts of the straight line with the circumference of the circle. The line segment is the diameter. Another case would be that you have a circle drawn with no center marked. Draw one straight line through the circle. Use a compass to draw the perpendicular bisector…
