Circumference of a Circle
The circumference of the circle is the total distance around a closed curve. In other words, the circumference is the total length around the circle. It is measured in linear units, like centimeters or inches.
Circumference of a Circle Formula
The formula of circumference of a circle is given by the following formula,
Circumference, $C = 2 * \pi * r$
where, r is the radius of the circle.
and pi is a constant value and is equal to 3.14
The circumference of a circle can be calculated by its diameter using the following formula:
Circumference, $C = \pi * D $
Where, value of $\pi$ is a constant and its value is approximately 3.14159265358979323846.... or 22/7 to be more precise and D is the diameter of the circle. To simplify calculations the value of $\pi$ is rounded to 3.14. The diameter of a circle is twice its radius. Therefore, Circumference, $C = 2 \pi r$
Circumference of a Circle Examples
Below are the examples on circumference of a circle -
Find the circumference of a circle given that its radius is 8.
The circumference is always multiply by 2 the length of the radius,
Circumference of circle = $2 \pi r$
Circumference = $2 * 8 * \pi = 50.24$
