Arc

Concept

Arc

An arc is defined as a smooth and continuous section of a curve.

When two points on a circle are used to create an arc, a second arc is also created. The two arcs are then called minor and major arcs.

Arcs may have a finite or an infinite length. An arc of a line is commonly referred to as a segment or a ray.
