Even if someone didn’t know the value of the constant, they could surmise that it is three diameters. This makes the symbol carry more meaning than the more common symbol, and it conveys the idea that we are dealing with PI defined from the Whole Unit Circle, not the 2pr-based Unit Circle. Since any meaning derived from the symbol depends on observation, we make the symbol sufficiently meaningful that mere observation of the symbol is enough to know the approximate value of the constant. This symbol expresses “This is the Circle, and it is approximately equal to Three diameters”.


The symbol for Whole PI.
