Maybe this pic will help :

 

 

 

The radius is a segment drawn from the center of a circle to a vertex of an inscribed polygon. The apothem is a segment drawn from the center of the circle that bisects the side of the inscribed polygon. Because this side is a chord, it meets that chord at right angles.
