Why ball not square?

Tell us what’s happening:
Hi this obviously really simple but in all the previous tasks i’ve been dealing with square and rectangles I can’t see why the shapes here are balls?

Your code so far

.ball {
  width: 40px;
  height: 40px;
  margin: 50 auto;
  position: fixed;
  background: linear-gradient(
  border-radius: 50%;
#ball1 {
  left: 20%;
#ball2 {
  left: 65%;



<div class="ball" id= "ball1"></div>
<div class="ball" id= "ball2"></div>
