Trying to Calculate Pi Using a Pendulum


Pi is a number that pops up in a lot of different formulas besides those representing the relationship between a circle's diameter and radius. Pi can be found in Coulomb's law, probability, and even, if you remember back to physics, the calculation of a pendulum's length. Watch below to see me derive a formula for Pi out of the formula for a pendulum then I write a quick program to try to experimentally find it!
