How to Find Equation of Circle?

The circle is defined as the set of points placed at an equal distance from a single point in a plane. The midpoint of the circle is called the centre of the circle. The distance from the centre of the circle to the surface is called the radius(r). The equation of the circle is calculated using the formula:

Equation of circle: (x - x1)2 + (y - y1)2 = r2, where (x, y) are points on surface of circle, (x1, y1) are coordinates of centre, and 'r' is radius of the circle.

Solved Example:

Find the equation of the circle with centre (3, 2) and radius is 5 units

Solution:

Equation of circle: (x - x1)2 + (y - y1)2 = r2,

(x - 3)2 + (y - 2)2 = 52

(x - 3)2 + (y - 2)2 = 25.

Therefore, equation of circle is (x - 3)2 + (y - 2)2 = 25.

Similarly, you can try the calculator to find the equation of circle for

1) centre (5,2) and radius = 7 units

2) centre (-4,-1) and radius = 9 units
