New Mathematical Constant: f

Dear People,
I made a new
Mathematical Constant thats
called f (pronounced effa)
[attachment=0:3sm5cxt0]CodeCogsEqn.gif[/attachment:3sm5cxt0]
So, if that is f, then
to find the area if a sphere
we can just do
f(r^3).
Finally,
32 digits of f: 4.1887902047863909846168578443727
Thanks, Zach

Re: New Mathematical Constant: f

btw,
if anyone could calculate up to 100 digits,
please send me them.

Re: New Mathematical Constant: f

Sorry. All I see is
f = PI(4/3)
What am I missing?

Re: New Mathematical Constant: f

Oh for £^€$@ sake.

This "new" constant is four thirds pi???

Re: New Mathematical Constant: f

You Dont Remember the formula 4/3*pi*r^3?
F is fricken useful. You don't have to do 4/3*3.14159265(I memorized 100 btw)*(r^3)
just do f(r^3)
lol...

Everyone, if you don't understand, then take the volume of a sphere,
divide it by f, and then you will get r^3, or r*r*r.

Re: New Mathematical Constant: f

Don't you see that f has really no use? It's like saying I'm making a constant for
and for (because a volume of a cone).

And why don't make a constant so that you can easily get the volume of a hypersphere? Why don't make a constant for everything ??

Those constants are all useless and so does f. The reason why they made a constant out of pi is because you can't quickly calculate it yourself and because it is needed a lot everywhere. f is only needed for a volume of a sphere...
