vertex
In geometry, a vertex is a point where two or more curves, lines, or edges meet
arc length
Determining the length of an irregular arc segment is also called rectification of a curve
inscribed angle
In geometry, an inscribed angle is the angle formed in the interior of a circle when two secant lines intersect on the circle
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
inscribed figure
In geometry, an inscribed planar shape or solid is one that is enclosed by and "fits snugly" inside another geometric shape or solid
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
