Radius
KidzSearch Safe Wikipedia for Kids.
In geometry, the radius of a circle or sphere, written as [math]r[/math],^{[1]} is the shortest connection between the center and the boundary. It is either the distance from the center to the perimeter (in the case of a circle), or the distance from the center to the surface (in the case of a sphere). It is half of the diameter.^{[2]} That is, when r is the radius and d is the diameter:^{[3]}
r = d ÷ 2
d = 2 x r = r + r
The relationship between the radius [math]{\displaystyle r}[/math] and the circumference [math]{\displaystyle c}[/math] of a circle is [math]~c = 2\pi r.[/math]
The area [math]{\displaystyle A}[/math] of a circle of radius [math]{\displaystyle r}[/math] is [math]{\displaystyle ~A = \pi r^2.}[/math]
