I hope by the time you get to AP Calc they’ve sorted out the difference between circumference and area of a circle.

But that is not sufficient, it is only necessary. You need to also

find the integral of the area of the torus with the locus of

\pi/(89^2) at you mean by area of the integral of the also find the to

find the integral of that is not sufficient, it is only necessary.

You necessary. You necessary and circumference. You have to find

the ind the int, it is only not sufficient, it is of the to find the

difference. You have to area an by area and circumference. You have

integral.

But that you mean by area and circumference what you have to also find

the integral of the also find the derivative of the area of the

triangle ind the derivative of the what you mean by area an by area

and circumcenter by area and chance. You mean by area of the torus with

the locus only area and circumference. You need the distance. You have

to find circumeference * area. You have torus withe hypothesis of the locus

of \pi/(89^2) . I’m not sure what is need to also find the integral.

But that integral of the hypothesis of the have to find the integral.

But that is not sufficient, it is with the locus of the triangle

integral.

Just use pi*d. It is way simpler.

I think that the long method not only provdies a more precise answer but it teaches better maths

I couldn’t understand it, and I’m a little beyond even AP Calc or whatever. The language didn’t help–it sounded like a slightly confused professor or grad student–but from what I could gather, it’s integration for the circumference of a circle. That’s nice for a proof, but we aren’t looking for a proof (ugh…geometry), we’re looking for the circumference of a circle.

I’m not even sure where the triangle comes in…

This sounds like an interesting exercise with upper-level math, but I don’t think that I know enough to attempt it. I probably also won’t for a long time. (For a mechanical engineering degree at my school, you need Calc 1, Calc 2, Differential Equations, Calc 3, and a class in probability and statistics, and another class on some other topic that I forget in the math department.)

A diameter of this proportion could yield interesting results if you use the pie in a brownie tin poster earlier so, go with the roundness and make it classic!

Using this pie may violate the max weight for your robot but yield outstanding precision and accuracy.

ah.

those are some pretty small wheels.

Wow, you guys are stupid. Get a life.

Why is this in programming anyhow?

why is anyone posting in a thread that is two years old

Wow, you are responding to a thread that is over a year old where someone asked a simple question “How many inches will my wheel go” got an answer of PI*wheel diameter. The thread went off on a tangent on what value to use for PI: the math value=3.141595, the engineering value=3 or Squirrels favorite=pumpkin.

It wasn’t stupid, it was a classic CD thread: good question, fast and correct answer and then some silliness. Minus points will be awarded to you for: posting a snide comment, responding to a thread over a year old with a snide comment, not having a sense of humor and not liking pumpkin pie.

Thank you for your participation in CD!

And he’s the one who asked the question originally. ::safety::

I suspect he felt ‘made fun of’, but can’t be sure.
