Does anyone know the formula to determine the perimeter of a circle?

This would be so handy for designing things like Gun barrels, wheels, engines, and anyother cylinders.

Dia. of circle

I believe the formula is 2 x pi x radius. ( pi = 3.14 )

If I'm wrong, somebody please correct me.

The circumference is pi times the diameter (or pi times the radius times 2).

I've posted this once but it didn't show, so here goes again.

Thanks dansls1, that's a better way of saying it.

Of the two equations given above, pi X diameter is the correct one for the circumference of a circle.

And if you're interested, pi x (radius squared) = area of circle.

pi = 3.1417

Therefore they are all correct

Ermmm.....

Did I mention I posted this question since I SUCK at math?

Now History, English, Spanish, or Arabic, that's a different story.
