### diameter

the distance across a circle, measured through its center. In the measure of pipe diameters, the inside diameter is that of the interior circle and the outside diameter that of the exterior circle.

In geometry, the diameter of a circle is any straight line segment that passes through the center of the circle and whose endpoints lie on the circle. It can also be defined as the longest chord of the circle. Both definitions are also valid for the diameter of a sphere. The word `diameter` is derived from Greek διάμετρος (diametros), ......
