# JavaScript | Math.PI Property

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.
Difference between property and function in javascript.
Property in JavaScript is nothing but a value whereas method is a function this can be understood with the help of an example given below.

 `  `

Output:

```Audi
A8
```

Here as we can see that property of the object car, is going to store the string as “Audi” and it can be accessed with car.name.
sayModel is a method i.e, a function of the object and it can be accessed with car.sayModel().
It can be noticed that sayModel is just a function which uses ().

Syntax:

`Math.PI`

Parameters: Here nothing is passed as a parameter because, Math.PI is not a function but it is a property.

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

Example:

```Input : Math.PI
Output: 3.141592653589793```

Explanation:Here simply value of PI i.e, Π is shown as output.

Let’s see JavaScript code for Math.PI property:

• Example 1:

 ` `

Output:

`3.141592653589793`
• Example 2:Value of PI i.e, Π can be printed as in the form of function as shown below.

 ` `

Output:

`3.141592653589793`

Errors and Exceptions: Here we consider Math.PI as a function but in actual it is a property that is why error as output is being shown.

•  ` `

Output:

`Error: Math.PI is not a function`
• Application: Whenever we need to find the value of anything related to PI that time we take the help of this property.In mathemaatics it needed a lot.
Let’s see the JavaScript program on this application:

• Example:Here we are going to find the value of the area of a circle with the given value of its radius.

 ` `

Output:

```78.53981633974483
```
