# PI in Java

The `Pi` is a constant value in Mathematics that represents a floating-point value `3.1415`. It is mostly used in geometry to calculate area, circumference, volume, etc. If you have studied geometry in your academic, then you may be aware of use of Pi such as calculating area require this constant value.

In Java, when we do geometric calculations, then we need this constant and for that, we have mainly two options either we create a constant and assigned `3.1415` value to it or use PI constant of `Math` class. Yes, Java provides a `Math` class that contains `PI` constant. So, Let’s see some examples to understand the use of PI in Java.

## PI Constant in Java

Here, we created a constant our own and assigned a value to it. We declared it as `final` so, cannot be changed. Here, we are calculating the area and circumference of circle by using the created PI constant.

Output

Enter radius :
5
Area is : 78.53
Circumference is : 31.41

## PI Constant in Java Math Class

Since Math class provides PI constant, we can use it to perform geometric calculations. Here, we are getting area and circumference of area using Math class. See the example and output below.

Output:

Enter radius :
5
Area is : 78.53
Circumference is : 31.41

That’s all about `PI` in java.
