Any chord that goes through the center of the circle is a diameter.You can draw an infinite number of diameters in any circle.In one circle, all of the diameters have the same length.

Yes providing that they are in the same circle

Yes, all radii of a circle have the same length. One often thinks of the radius as being this length.

A chord is any line segment going from one side of the circle to another. A diameter is a special chord - it is a chord that goes through the center of the circle. It is also the biggest chord possible in the circle. So all diameters are chords, but not all chords are diameters

No, all chords are not diameters, though all diameters are chords.

Yes.

They are not all the same length. If that was the case all circles would be the same size.

There are an infinite number - all of the same length.

There are infinite diameters in a circle all of the same lengths.

Yes, they all are.

Yes but they are all the same size

A diameter is a cord in a circle containing the center of the circle. But some circles are sections of spheres. Not all diameters are diameters of spheres.

A circle has an infinite number if diameters, but they are all the same length. The length of the diameter of a circle is the length of the longest straight line that can be drawn completely inside the circle. If the center of the circle is marked, then it's easy to draw a line that is a diameter ... it's any line that passes through the center of the circle.

-- Every circle has a diameter of some size. -- All of the diameters that you can draw in the same circle are the same size. -- The smaller the circle is, the smaller its diameter is. There's no minimum size. -- The larger the circle is, the larger its diameter is. There's no maximum size.

Yes

Any straight line that starts on the circle, ends on the circle, and goes through the center, is a diameter. There's no limit to the number of different diameters you can draw, all in the same circle, but they're all the same length. It's the longest possible straight line that you can draw inside the circle. It's the distance 'across' anything shaped like a circle.
