What is a Circle?
A circle is the equivalent of 1 revolution around a circle, or 360°.
A circle is sometimes also referred to as a revolution. Circles can be abbreviated as cir; for example, 1 circle can be written as 1 cir.
A circle is more commonly used to describe a round, symmetrical shape with no corners or edges than it is to describe plane angle. The shape is described by its radius and circumference.
