Pi Day: Google celebrates mathematical constant with a special doodle

March 14 is quite a day! Incidentally, in 2009, the United States House of Representatives had voted in favour of designating today as Pi day.

Google is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Pi Day with a Google doodle depicting an actual apple "Pie". In geometry, pie plays an important constant in finding out the area of a circle.

Today, Google doodle honors "Pi", the mathematical constant that never ends and never shows a pattern, with a pie. Ansel, in his signature chef style, honoured the mathematical constant by demonstrating the pi formula using his personal Salted Caramel Apple Pie recipe. Though modern mathematicians have calculated more than one TRILLION decimal places beyond the standard "3.14", pi is an irrational number that continues on to infinity. Mike Keith wrote a book "Not A Wake" entirely in Pilish.

It is a ratio between the perimeter of the circle and diameter of the same circle. For the record, this author went to the calculator to see what the value is.

Pi does not belong in the category of normal numbers, at least it is believed so by Mathematicians.

Pi day is celebrated on March 14, or 3/14, the first three numbers of Pi. Ansel describes the process of cooking itself as a scientific process where one has to be precise, keep in mind volume and weight in a video to celebrate the Pi day. The challenge, which was created by the Education Office of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, is now in its fifth year. This involves the calculation of Martian earthquakes, the helium rain on Jupiter and the rotation rate of asteroids and even the solar eclipse.
