A line segment, also known as an interval or closed interval, is 2 connected points.

It can be considered as being the solid interior of the 0-dimensional hypersphere, the point pair.

A circle can be made by rotating a line segment around the middle axis.

People often refer to it as a line. A proper line has infinite length. They refer to a line segment when they mean line.

A line segment is actually made of an infinite number of points as the line connecting the two points is made up of an infinite number of points.
