Sorry, No.

Circumference=3.14xD Pi times the diameter

Area=3.14 x radius squared.


ALSO: your calculation is wrong.

2 X 3.146 X 12 = 18.876" = Circumference

2x3.14x12=75.36

ALSO: your number for Pi is incorrect.

Andy just saved me typing out all of that explanation of what was wrong with the Chief's calculations. Well, there's also the fact that it's the diameter that is 12", not the radius.

Bargain? That is a downright steal! I received a Cusinart 5 Qt. as a gift and she paid $59.00. It is great for making a family size frittata. It is great for making any family meal.

Ok, now you've done it. I'm all red-faced. It's been 20 years since I've been in a schoolroom, and that was just before getting my engineering degree. I guess it's true what they say, use it or lose it. Keeping a phone system running doesn't require much math. It's a whole different skill set.

So I guess I'll go design an op-amp that will keep a rocket on course to the next habitable planet over the course of 250 years of 1.5 g accelleration. Impossible you say? Nothing can go faster than the speed of light, you say? Well, go ahead then. Prove it.

Yeh, I need another nap.

I was surprised. I guess you were tired.
NASA is looking at the possibility of a warp drive! You don't travel through space at faster than light. You warp space so the bit in front of you is much smaller and the bit behind you is much bigger. Engage warp drive!

I wonder if it's something like traveling in a straight line through the curvature of space.

Folding space (Dune), warped drive (StarTrek), worm holes (Stargate), all part of the world of science fiction. I'm wondering about the "faith" angle myself, and kind of looking forward to knowing if my beliefs are correct. I'm sticking with them though, for life (and hopefully, the afterlife).

I think we're off-topic again.
