An annulus is similar to a ring or a castle's moat; it is the area between two concentric circles. Calculating the annulus area, therefore, involves finding the difference of the two circles' area. A common trick on annulus problems is to give the distance between the small and large circle, and not the large circle's radius. Related topics include area of a sector, area of a circle and area of an segment.
