Pi is the ratio between every circle’s circumference and its diameter.

Turns out that circles, circular stuff and cyclic stuff appear all over math. Because of this, [Pi appears in various formula](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_formulae_involving_%CF%80) in math and physics, even in fields that don’t appear to be directly related to circles.
