the amazing fact about the mathematical constant π

Updated on May 29, 2012

The Amazing Factors About the Mathematical Constant "π"

Hi friends i think all of us know that there is a mathematical constant we are using for various calculation in mathematics named PI .we denote it as a symbol "π".Do you know some history about PI.There was two mathematicians who spend their major portion of their time for the study of this constant.they were great Archimedes and Ludolph van Ceulen. so this constant also known as Archimedes's constant and Ludolphine's digit.

Actualy Pi is a ratio between its Perimeter to its diameter π=P/D P is perimeter of circle and D is diameter of circle.its value found as 22/7 or 3.14. Indian ancient scientist Aryabatta also made major studies on his ancient book Aryabadeeyam he mentioned that π=63832/2000.He said if a circle is having its diameter 2000 then it will have perimeter of 63832.this value he got from his repeated studies.

The ancient Indian scientist Bhaskaracharya found that π=22/7.He found for accurate perimeter multiply diameter with 3927/ P=Dx3927/1250.

It is impossible to find out the exact value of Pi.The above mentioned scientists also couldn't find out it.Pi is an irrational number.Till today scientist found around 10 trillion numbers after its decimal point.The last ten latest numbers are is impossible to find out the complete value for Pi.

To remember the approximate value of Pi remember this"MAY(3) I(1) HAVE(4) A(1) LARGE CONTAINER(9) OF(2) COFFEE(6).Just check out the respective number of each word in this can also use this sentence HOW(3) I(1) WISH(4) I(1) COULD(5) RECOLLECT(9) OF(2) CIRCLE(6) THE(3) EXACT(5) RELATION(8) ARCHEMEDE(9) UNWOUND(7)

It is also interesting that every year we are celebrating Pi day it is 14thof March .ie month-date it will be similar as the value as 3.14.

hope all of you understood what i am trying to express .thanks
