# Circle Calculator

If you want to determine the circle's area and perimeter or circumference, you can use our circle calculator.

In geometry, the circle is described as a 2-D closed rounded shape where each point of a circle's surface has an equal distance from the center point. At the same time, the **distance** between the **circle's surface** and the **center of a circle** is known as the **radius**. Whereas a **straight line** that **starts from one point** and **ends at the opposite point**, **cutting the circle into two pieces** is called the **diameter of a circle**. It is a double radius.

## Formula of Circle Calculator

If you want to determine the area and circumference of a circle instantly, you can use our calculator, or to determine it manually, you can use the formula listed below:

Area of the circle = A = πr^{2}Square units

Circumference of the circle = 2πr units

**Where,**

π = 3.14

r = radius of a circle

### Example

For a more precise understanding of a concept, let us solve an example below:

Suppose the radius of a circle equals 10cm, then find out the area and the circumference of a circle.

**Given data**

Radius = 10 cm

**To Find**

Area of a circle = ?

Circumference of a circle = ?

**Solution**

To find out the area and circumference of a circle, we will use the formula listed below:

Area of the circle = A = πr^{2}Square units

Circumference of the circle = 2πr units

Putting values in the formula:

Area = 3.14 × (10)^{2}= 314 cm^{2}

Circumference = 2 × 3.14 × 10 = 62.8 cm

**Note:**

If you want to make an equation of a circle, you can use our Equation Of A Circle Calculator.
