# Tau

### Support the RIGHT circle constant

## What is Tau?

Tau is the value of 2π or 6.28. It is calculated as the ratio between the circumference and the radius, a circle is better defined by their radius as opposed to their diameter as Pi represents. Tau would also simplify many formulas which contain the need to divide by 2 or multiply by 2 to get the result Tau stands for.

## What about Pi?

Pi or 3.14159 is an irrational and transcendental number that is found all over the world. It is not "wrong" in the sense of being factually incorrect; the number is fine. It is just that it is no longer necessary to use.

## Tau is the Superior Circle Constant

- Tau is the direct ratio of the radius of a circle to its circumference, and the radius of a circle, not the diameter of a circle (as used by Pi) is used to define the circle. Diameter is rarely found and radius is the way circle are normally classified by.
- There are so many formulas in the math world that use 2π. So if we could replace all these 2π with tau, mathematics would be so much simpler.
- Using Tau rather than Pi also simplifies graphing circle functions, and it makes them meaningful and makes sense.
- Going all the way around a circle is equal to 2π, or τ. If we were to use to π to explain the revolution around a circle, it gets confusing. A quarter of the way is π/8 and half way around the circle is π/4. It wouldn't have to be this way if we used τ. A quarter of the way around the circle would by τ/4, and halfway around the circle would be τ/2 and ¾ of the way is ¾ of τ, and a whole circle is equal to 1τ.
