What is the difference between the apothem and the radius?

Guest Apr 19, 2017


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.
