## Equation of a Circle

The equation of a circle maps the circle on a two-dimensional coordinate plane. Following are some useful forms of the equation of the circle.

 Standard Form (x-h)2+(y-k)2 = r2Where h,k is the coordinate of the center of the circle, and r is the radius. Polar Form x2+y2 = r2Where x=rcosθ and y=rsinθ. General Form x2+y2+Ax+By+C = 0Where A, B, and C are constant.
