The Math.PI is a property in JavaScript which is simply used to find the value of Pi i.e, in symbolic form Π which is nothing but it is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter, whose value is approximately 3.141. It is mainly used in a mathematics problem.

Syntax:  

Math.PI

Return values: It simply returns the value of PI i.e, Π

Below is an example of the Math PI Property. 

Example: Here simply the value of PI is printed in the console.

Javascript




<script>
    // Here value of Math.PI is printed.
     console.log(Math.PI);
</script>

Output: 

3.141592653589793

Example: Value of PI i.e, Π can be printed in the form of a function as shown below.  

Javascript




<script>
    // function is being called.
    function get_Value_of_PI()
    {
        return Math.PI;
    }
      
    // function is calling.
    console.log(get_Value_of_PI());
</script>

Output: 

3.141592653589793

Example: Here we consider Math.PI is a function but in actuality, it is a property which is why the error as output is being shown. 

Javascript




<script>
    // Here we consider Math.PI as a function but
    // in actual it is a property that is why error
    // as output is being shown.
    console.log(Math.PI(12));
</script>

Output: 

Error: Math.PI is not a function

Example: Whenever we need to find the value of anything related to PI that time we take the help of this property. In mathematics, it needed a lot. Here we are going to find the value of the area of a circle with the given value of its radius. 

Javascript




<script>
    // function is being called with radius 5 as a parameter.
    function area_of_circle(radius_of_the_circle)
    {
        return Math.PI * radius_of_the_circle * radius_of_the_circle;
    }
      
    // Here area of the circle is 5 unit.
    console.log(area_of_circle(5));
</script>

Output: 

78.53981633974483
