The Names of the Different Bits a Circle

Just about everybody knows that the distance all the way round a circle is called the CIRCUMFERENCE but do you know what all the other bits are called?

Have a look at this lot and see if you can match all the names to the different parts:

a/ diameter   b/ sector   c/central angle

d/major arc   e/ radius   f/ segment

g/ tangent   h/ minor arc   i/ chord

Drag your mouse across the box for the answers:
  1d   2e   3h   4b   5c   6g   7a   8i   9f
