A circle consists of various different parts. Radius and diameter are two of them. The radius of a circle is the distance from the center of the circle to any particular point. It is represented using ‘r’. The diameter is a straight line that passes through the center of the circle. It is represented using ‘d’.

Teaching Converting between radius and diameter easily

Firstly, write down the length of radius and diameter.

Secondly, use the radius or diameter formula to get an appropriate result.

Always write the same units.

Here is an example to solve a question on converting radius to diameter. Let’s look at the given example mentioned below to understand the conversion of radius to diameter easily.

Radius to diameter = 2r.

Diameter to radius = d/2.

Where,

R = radius

D = diameter.

Q. Convert the radius of 6 units into diameter.

Step 1: Write the length of the radius.

Length of radius = 6 units.

Step 2: Use the conversion between radius and diameter formula

Formula to convert radius into diameter = 2r.

So,

Diameter = 2 * 6 = 12 units.

Answer: 12 units.
