# What is the chord of a circle?

**Solution:**

The circle is a plane figure, formed by the set of points that are at a constant or fixed distance (radius) from a fixed point (center) in the plane.

A chord of a circle is any line segment joining two points on the circumference of the circle.

Some of the properties of a chord are given below:

- The diameter is the longest chord of a circle.
- The chord divides the circle into two segments.
- The perpendicular from the center to the chord bisects the chord.

Thus, a chord of a circle is any line segment joining two points on the circumference of the circle.

## What is the chord of a circle?

**Summary:**

A chord of a circle is any line segment joining two points on the circumference of the circle.
