No because that is its radius

A segment is not connected to the centre of a circle, it is the area bounded by a Secant (chord) and an arc. Draw a circle, draw a radius (centre to edge). Draw another radius. Where the radii join the circle edje draw a line joining the two points. This is the secant. You should be able to see a triangle and and a half moon shape. The half moon shape is the segment. The segment and the triangle make up a sector.

A chordof a circle is a geometric line segment whose endpoints both lie on the circle. A secantor a secant line is the line extension of a chord. More generally, a chord is a line segment joining two points on any curve, such as but not limited to an ellipse. A chord that passes through the circle's center point is the circle's diameter.
