Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'd like to know the name for the lenght in a circle that I will describe:

Consider 2 arbitrary points lying on the perimeter of a circle. I'm talking about the shortest distance distance between these those points. (i.e. the straight line joining them.)

Thx
