# Area of a Circle Calculator

**Area of a circle -** is the region occupied by the circle in a two-dimensional plane. It can be determined easily using a formula, A = πr2, where r is the radius of the circle.

### What is meant by the Area of Circle?

The area of Circle is usually defined as the number of square units that cover inside the circle. The region occupied by the Circle in two-dimensional space is referred to as Area of the Circle. The area is represented by a square unit. A circle is usually a closed figure from which all the points lying on the surface of a circle are equidistant and the point is called the center.

Distance between the center and surface of the circle is known as the radius.

Formula to calculate the area of the circle is πr2 where r is the radius.

### How to find the Area of Circle?

**Step 1:** Determine the radius of the circle

**Step 2:**Substitute the value of radius in the Formula Area = π*r*r

**Step 3:**Finally you can find the area of Circle by following the above procedure.

In certain cases, where the diameter "d" is given you can calculate the radius by dividing the diameter by 2

**i.e. r=d/2**

**Example 1: **Calculate the Area of Circle if the radius is 15 cm?

**Solution: ** Given the radius of the Circle = 15 cm

We know the Area of Circle as per formula = π*r*r

Here in this case radius r = 15 cm

On Substituting in the formula we get A = π*15*15

Usually the value of π(Pi) = 3.14

thus we get A = 3.14*15*15

= 706.5 Sq. Cm

∴ Area of Circle for radius 15 Cm is 706.5 cm2.

### FAQs on Area of a Circle

**1. How do you calculate the Area of Circle?**

The area of Circle is calculated using the formula πr2. Substitute the radius and you will get the Area of Circle easily.

**2. What is the formula for the Area of Circle?**

The area of Circle formula is πr2. You can calculate the area using this easily.

**3. What does Area of Circle mean?**

The area of Circle is usually defined as the number of square units that cover inside the circle.

**4. How to find the area of a circle if the diameter is given?**

You can calculate the area of a circle if the diameter is given as such

D=2r

thus r= D/2, substitute the same in the Area of Circle formula i.e. πr2

= π*(D/2)2

= πD2/4
