# Abscissa of a point of a circle (trigonometric function)

## Description

The abscissa of point of a circle, in an x–y Cartesian coordinate system, can be computed by the abscissa of the center of the circle, the radius and the angle that the ray from the center of the circle to the point makes with the x-axis
