what is chord

A line segment touching 2 points on the circumference of a circle.The diameter is the longest chord.

  • 2

A straight line whose both the ends touch the circumference of circle.

  • 3

Achordof acircleis ageometricline segmentwhose endpoints both lie on the circle. Asecantor asecant lineis the line extension of a chord. More generally, a chord is a line segment joining two points on any curve, such as but not limited to anellipse. A chord that passes through the circle's center point is the circle's diameter.

Among properties of chords of acircleare the following:

  1. Chords are equidistant from the center only if their lengths are equal.
  2. A chord that passes through the center of a circle is called a diameter, and is the longest chord.
  3. If the line extensions (secant lines) of chords AB and CD intersect at a point P, then their lengths satisfy APPB = CPPD (power of a point theorem).

The area that a circular chord "cuts off" is called acircular segment.

Chord is from the Latin Chorda meaning Bowstring.

The red segmentBXis achord(as is the diameter lineAB).

A chord is a line segment whose endpoints lie on the circle. A diameter is the longest chord in a circle. A tangent to a circle is a straight line that touches the circle at a single point, while a secant is an extended chord: a straight line cutting the circle at two points.

A straight line connecting two points on a curve.Example: a straight line connecting two points on a circle's circumference would be a chord.When the chord passes through the center of a circle it is called the diameter.

a line segment which joins any two points on the circle,is called a line segment.the diameter is the longest chors as it is in the center.
