you not call as the ratio all the

circumference of a circle

to its diameter so how far and a circle

divided by how far across keep on ever

since

people for starting about mathematics or

geometry pies blame on the most

fashionable numbers and applies in so

many other areas

mathematics and geometry engineering the

physics

and it's driven some people absolutely

man in your text or instead

mathematical disc jockey Adam Spencer

is a big big fan hi a number

it appears in the weirdest places for

example

take the sort of wine the rivers that

flow across gently sloping plane

it's not exactly clear why but measured

actual length or width of divided by the

distance from source to ocean as the

crow flies

and the result he's on half rage hi

3.14 hi it's a god-given number

and it appeared everywhere from

probability to pendula

as pointed out by Matt Synthesia Rob

East away

ok and by the way and over GE pendulum

length divided by the acceleration due

to gravity

the pendulum swinging quite free then

it's always a marvel to me

but each take place each talk the

grandfather clock

is to pie root out energy now maybe it's

not such a surprise for the pendulum

you've got to hide because after all

pentium is a fix

taken it's creating a bit of an archive

a circle but there are other situations

where you think

surely have got anything to do with a

circle

let's suppose wanna a really big sandy

beach on some

desert island and got a very large break

and each the key the right car exactly 1

inch apart

he just run miss rake along the beach

and you can match you create a lot two

parallel lines

you happen as well to have a matchstick

which is exactly one inch long and he

did not stop talking this much that

landing it on your power lines

well if you do this experiment thousands

of times

the chance landing on one of the lines

exactly to have a pie

if you kentucky's I'm completely random
