Pi is an absolute value.
Pi is a constant value defined by the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. The fact that it cannot be expressed exactly as a decimal is neither here nor there. One-third is a constant number which cannot be expressed exactly as a decimal, either, but that does not stop you using one-third in a mathematical calculation, does it?
It's close enough for government work lol<br />
Whether or not it has a finite "absolute value" has no bearing on whether or not it's useful. The level of accuracy required is determined by the level at which you're modeling, really. <br />
i.e. Two decimals might suck for quantum physics, but it works well enough in most Newtonian calculations.
22/7 is absolute value. The question of it's absoluteness surfaces when you choose to divide it. 3.14..... etc
Yes. You have to apply 'Limit theory'. You first divide the circle into infinitesimal sectors and then as the as n--> 0 , and so on.
I mean 'add the as n--> 0, and so on'
3.14 is considered universal PI. Depending on how many decimal places you go out will determine the full accuracy of a calculation. The accuracy increases for each digit start to get so small though that it doesn't really matter.
Yeah. That makes 6 sectors of 60 degrees each . Wonder how it puts absoluteness of Pi in question.
because its close enough............
I know.........................yawn.....................same here...
