Concentric Circles

Go back to  'Circles'

Two circles are said to be concentric if they have the same center. The following figure shows two concentric circles with the same center O:

 

Concentric circles

Note that any two concentric circles whose radii are r1 and r2 (with\({r_1} > {r_2}\)) will form a ring-shaped region between them, as shown below:

Concentric circles and their radii

Observe that the width of this ring-shaped region will be \({r_1} - {r_2}\).
