Center of a circle
the point inside a circle that is the same distance from all the points on the circle
CENTRAL ANGLE
An angle whose vertex is the center of the circle.
CHORD (a)
a segment whose endpoints are on the circle.
CIRCLE (c)
The set of all points in a plane that are the equal distance from a given point
