Every line segment between the center of a circle and any point on the circleis the same length as all the others.That length is called the 'radius' of that particular circle.

Any straight line from the centre to the circumference is a radius and all are the same length.

Exactly as in the question and a segment of a circle is the area enclosed by a chord and an arc of a circle.
