The cord of a circle that contains the center of that circle is a diameter of that circle.
That is the 'diameter'
The diameter of a circle is its largest chord
is called the diameter.
The length of a chord that contains the center of the circle
Any chord of a circle that contains the center of the circle is a diameter of that circle.Just two things now. We'll say that the chord of a circle that passes through the center is the longest chord of that circle, but you've probably already figured that out. Additionally, we'll say that there are an infinite number of chords that can be drawn through the center of a circle. Now you're armed and ready to continue your investigation in geometry. A link can be found below to check facts and gather more information.
If a chord goes thru the center of a circle, it is the diameter
No, the cord of a circle does not have to go through the center of that circle. A chord that does go through the center of a circle is a special case and is called the diameter. A chord can connect any two points on a circle.
