Circumcircle of a triangle. Definition and properties with interactive applet.
Animation showing that in any triangle, the centroid, circumcenter and orthocenter are always collinear - they always lie on a straight line, called the Euler line.
This page shows how to construct (draw) the circumcenter of a triangle with compass and straightedge or ruler. The circumcenter of a triangle is the point where the perpendicular bisectors of the sides intersect. It is also the center of the circumcircle, the circle that passes through all three vertices of the triangle. A Euclidean construction.
