tangent to a circle
In Euclidean plane geometry, a tangent line to a circle is a line that touches the circle at exactly one point, never entering the circle's interior
central angle
A central angle is an angle whose apex is the center O of a circle and whose legs are radii intersecting the circle in two distinct points A and B
