I would like to plot a circle with a given radius and center.

Here is a MATLAB function that plots a circle with radius 'r' and locates the center at the coordinates 'x' and 'y':
function h = circle(x,y,r)
hold on
th = 0:pi/50:2*pi;
xunit = r * cos(th) + x;
yunit = r * sin(th) + y;
h = plot(xunit, yunit);
hold off
An alternative method is to use the 'rectangle' function:
function h = circle2(x,y,r)
d = r*2;
px = x-r;
py = y-r;
h = rectangle('Position',[px py d d],'Curvature',[1,1]);
daspect([1,1,1])
If you are using version R2012a or later and have Image Processing Toolbox, then you can use the 'viscircles' function to draw circles:

Thanks and we want answer to plot circle when they have given us centre and a point on the circle

If you would like to plot a circle given two points [Center, Point on circle], rather than [Center, Radius], you can simply calculate the distance between your two points, and then use that distance as the radius.

This is part of the Image Processing Toolbox

I've applied circular hough tranform for identifing the circlular objects in an image and i got the results . But when i used the code into an app designer, insted of ploting the circles into the image where the centers are marked its ploting the circle in a different figure. How can i get both circles and center points into the same axes ( named "app.segmented" )
error
How to add the axes name to viscircles function in an app designer. I tired
viscircles(centres,radii,'color','b','parent','app.segemented'); which is giving the following error.

hello
you can plot a circle simply by writing :
syms x; syms y;
ezplot((x-xi).^2+(y-yi).^2-r.^2)
where xi and yi are the coordinates of the center and r is the radius
