A *diameteris a chord which

passes through the center of the circle.

Note: The length of a diameter equals

2 times the length of a radius.

Name the Diameter: MC

A *secant to a circleis a line which intersects the circle in 2 points.Note: Every secant will contain a chord. Be sure to include the proper symbol for a segment or line when naming chords or secants.

Secant

Tangent

Secants are LINES.

Chords are SEGMENTS.

A *tangent to a circleis a line, in the plane of the circle, that intersects the circle in exactly one point.

The word TANGENT means one intersection.
