If I know the centroid of a n sided polygon, how can I calculate the radius of its circumcircle? (The minimum circle that encompasses all of the polygon's vertices) Thank you.

Maximum distance between all point pairs (edit: divided by two, that is, since you're looking for the radius :) ). Or if your barycenter is computed correctly, max distance from each point to the barycenter.
