@thephysicshouse

In math class, we’re sure you’ve learned about π, which is known as Pi. The value of Pi is 3.1415926535897…  and the value literally continues forever. But where did Pi come from? The Physics House has a unique way of explaining the origin of Pi and other science topics by making them entertaining and easy to understand.
