...figure to the circumference are equal to one another. This point is the centre of the circle. A Diameter **of a circle is a straight line drawn through the centre and terminated** bolt ways by the circumference. A diameter cuts a circle into two equal parts, each of which is a Semi-circle.... | |

...device is employed to make such points conspicuous and more easily located by the reader. A diameter **is a straight line drawn through the centre, and terminated both ways by the circumference.** FIG. 1. Thus, in Fig. 2, O is the centre of the circle; OA, OB, OC, are radii; AOB is a diameter. From... | |
