3 Practical Cases to Multiply Pi in Excel

In the Excel sheet, Pi is quite easy to multiply. We have shown 3 cases where we multiplied Pi in different equations.


1. Multiply Pi to Find Out Circle Properties

We have a dataset of radius from different circles. We will find out the Circumference and Area of those individual circles using a simple formula where Pi will be multiplied.

How to Multiply Pi in Excel

Step 1:

➤ Write the following formula in C5 and press ENTER.

=2*PI()*B5

So, we get the Circumference for the first circle.

➤ Now, Hold and Drag the C5 cell downwards.

Multiply Pi in Excel

Doing so, all cells will be populated with Circumference values.

Step 2:

Now, we will calculate the Area of the individual circles.

➤ Write the following formula in D5 and press ENTER.

=PI*B5*B5

Multiply Pi in Excel

So, we get Area for the first circle.

➤ Now, Hold and Drag the D5 cell downwards.

Thus, we get the Area values for all other circles

2. Multiply Pi to Find Out Sphere Volumes

Let’s have a dataset consisting of radius Values of different spheres. We are going to calculate their volumes which we have to multiply by Pi.

Multiply Pi in Excel

➤ Write the following formula in the C5 cell and press ENTER.

=(4/3)*PI()*B5*B5*B5

So, we have got the volume for the first sphere.

➤ Now, Hold and Drag the C5 cell downwards.

Thus, we have got Volumes for all other Spheres.


3. Multiply Pi to Convert Degree Values to Radian Values

We have a dataset consisting of degree values in Column B. And, we will convert them to radian Values.

➤ Write the following formula in C5 and press ENTER.

=(PI()/180)*B5

Multiply Pi in Excel

So, we have got the radian value for the first degree value.

➤ Now, Hold and Drag C5 downward.

Thus, all the other degree values are also converted into radian values

Note: Make sure you add parenthesis () after PI i.e. PI() or pi().

How to Multiply Pi Using Cell Reference in Excel

We can multiply pi using cell reference in Excel.

We have the same dataset for converting degree values to radians.

In E6, we will set the cell reference.

Multiply Pi in Excel

➤ Write the following equation in cell E6 and press ENTER.

=PI()

We will get the value of pi in the E6 cell.

Multiply Pi in Excel

➤ Then, write the following formula in C5 and press ENTER.

=($E$6/180)*B5

Doing so, we get the radian value for the first cell.

➤ Now, Hold and Drag cell C5 downward.

Multiply Pi in Excel

Thus, we get the radian values for all other cells.
