Page 209 - ... possible ways to define the circumference of a circle. Statically, the circumference of a circle can be defined as the locus of all points in a plane a given distance from some point in the plane which we designate as the center. On the other hand, we could define the circumference kinematically as the curve generated by a point moving in a plane in such a way that it is always the same distance from some point in the plane designated as the center and it returns to the position of departure....
