# HTML | canvas arc() Method

The arc() method is used to create an arc/curve i.e. circles, or parts of circles.

Syntax:

`context.arc(x, y, r, sAngle, eAngle, counterclockwise);`

Parameters:

• x: This parameter specifies the x-coordinate of the center of the circle.
• y: This parameter specifies the y-coordinate of the center of the circle.
• r: This parameter specifies the radius of the circle.
• sAngle: This parameter specifies the starting angle, in radians( 3 o’clock position of the arc’s circle denotes 0).
• eAngle: This parameter specifies the ending angle in radians.
• counterclockwise: This parameter specifies the drawing should be clockwise or anticlockwise. It is false by default which denotes clockwise.

Example 1:

 ```<``html``>`` ` `<``head``>``    ``<``title``>``        ``HTML canvas arc() Method``    `````` ` `<``body` `style``=``"text-align:left;"``>`` ` `    ``<``h1``>GeeksforGeeks`` ` `    ``<``h2``>HTML canvas arc() Method`` ` `    ``<``canvas` `id``=``"GFG"` `width``=``"500"` `height``=``"200"``>``    ```` ` `    ``<``script``>``        ``var doc_id = document.getElementById("GFG");``        ``var context = doc_id.getContext("2d");``        ``context.beginPath();``        ``context.strokeStyle = 'green';``        ``context.arc(100, 50, 40, 0, 2 * Math.PI);``        ``context.stroke();``    `````` ` ``

Output:

Example 2:

 ```<``html``>`` ` `<``head``>``    ``<``title``>``        ``HTML canvas arc() Method``    `````` ` `<``body` `style``=``"text-align:left;"``>`` ` `    ``<``h1``>GeeksforGeeks`` ` `    ``<``h2``>HTML canvas arc() Method`` ` `    ``<``canvas` `id``=``"GFG"` `width``=``"500"` `height``=``"200"``>``    ```` ` `    ``<``script``>``        ``var doc_id = document.getElementById("GFG");``        ``var context = doc_id.getContext("2d");``        ``context.beginPath();``        ``context.fillStyle = 'green';``        ``context.arc(100, 50, 40, 0, 2 * Math.PI);``        ``context.fill();``    `````` ` ``
