Radius formula is simply derived by halving the diameter of the circle. When we connect a point on the circumference on a circle to the exact centre, then the line segment made is called the radius of the ring. The distance between the center of the circle to its circumference is the radius. The diameter is always double the radius. Hence, the formula is derived by dividing the diameter by 2.
Formulas for Radius
The Radius Formula in terms of diameter, circumference, and the area is given as,
|Radius in Terms of Diameter||d ⁄ 2|
|Radius in Terms of Circumference||C ⁄ 2π|
|Radius in Terms of Area||√(A ⁄ π)|
- r is the radius of the circle
- d is the diameter of the circle
- C is the circumference of the circle
- A is the area of the circle
Solved Example Questions
Question 1: Find the radius of the circle whose diameter is 19 cm?
Diameter of the circle = d = 14 cm
Radius of the circle = (d ⁄ 2) = 19 ⁄ 2 cm = 9.2 cm
Question 2: Find the radius of the circle whose diameter is 30 cm?
Diameter of the circle = d = 25 cm
Radius of the circle = (d ⁄ 2) = 30 ⁄ 2 cm = 15 cm
