The radius

Diameter.

A chord. a diameter also has endpoints on a circle, the only difference is a diameter goes through the center point and a chord doesnt have to go through the center. a diameter is considered a chord.

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 circle's outer points. Semicircle- half of a circle. Central Angle- an angle that has its' vertex as the center point of the circle. Inscribed Polygon- a polygon that has all its' vertexes on the circles outer points. kk :-)

No, it is not. A chord is a line segment. It cannot have a length of zero. A point has no dimensions. The chord of a circle is a line segment that has its endpoints (both of them) on the curve (or circumference) of the circle.

any point on a circle and the circle's center

A radius; considering a sphere is a 3-D version of a circle.

if you mean the point that starts at the edge of the circle and ends in the center then this is the radius (:

The line segment is the radius of a circle that connects the center of a circle to any point on its circumference.

It is the radius of the circle
