Question Mobius strips and Pi

I know that pi is involved in mobius strips because they are basically twisted cylinders. The infinity symbol is a 2D version of a mobius strip and it is a twisted circle.

But for a mobius strip, would you use the same formulas as you would for a cylinder(or for the infinity symbol, a circle)? How would you know the radius of a twisted shape? Would the twist add or subtract some number x from the formulas for cylinders and circles?

I haven't been able to find anything online about this so if you could help me, that would be awesome.
