Life with Pi

The formulas and calculators below do NOT include plane geometry equations.Obviously our beloved `pi` is used all over the place in plane (2D) and euclidean (3D) geometry.  But as I went through vCalc's catalog, I came across formula after formula that uses `pi` in things we do every day from cooking, to gardening, electrical work, plumbing, manufacturing, aerospace and agriculture.  I found `pi` in the manufacturing of pills, cars and trucks, pipes and bowls and every possible thing that has either a circular, cylindrical or spherical shape.  Without the use of`pi`, we be cavemen trying to invent the wheel.
