Stats 1510 Research Project: On the Relationship Between the Diameter and Circumference of Circular Objects Ashlan Napier Taft College

## The circumference, the enclosing boundary of a curved geometric gure, has

often been dened as the diameter of a curved gure multiplied by pi, a number approximating to about 3.14. Many students have accepted this formula as law without bothering to check the facts themselves, however, in the following experiment, I will seek to prove that the circumference can accurately be calculated by multiplying the diameter by pi. ! In this experiment, objects were measured using a piece of string and a number

of rulers. The string was placed along the center of the face of the circular object like so:

(Please not that tape was not used in the measurement process, but for photographing purposes only.) The string was then marked with a pencil where it met the edges of the

face of the circular object. The space between these marks was measured with a ruler to record the diameter of the object as pictured below.

The same general process was used to measure the circumference of the circular object. The only difference being that the string was wrapped around the body of the object like so:

Again, the tape was only used for photographing purposes. After the string was marked on the places it overlapped, the space between the two marks was measured as before. This technique was used by an online college statistics class to measure the circumference and diameter of 392 objects. Once the data was collected by the students, it was submitted to the moodle website where the professor compiled the information onto a spreadsheet. The data associated with 25 objects was randomly selected using a TI84 calculators randInt application (randInt->0,392, 25), and recorded in the following table. Also recorded was the Pi (circumference/diameter) of each object. Table 1 Experimental Data

This data can be assumed to be representative of the population (the other objects measured by the students), because it was obtained through the randomizing features of the TI-84 calculator, which possesses no capacity for bias or human error. Using 1VarStats on the columns consisting of the measurements for Circumference, Diameter, and Pi, the following data was calculated.

Although the statistics pertaining to both the circumference and the diameter of the data uctuates drastically, those related to Pi (circumference/diameter) stay relatively constant. The mean and median of the Pi data are within tenths of each other, suggesting that the data is normal. The standard deviation from the mean is also quite small, suggesting that the relationship between the circumference and the diameter of

each object holds fairly constant as well. All of these qualities can be illustrated by the box and whisker plot found below. Figure 1. Pi Statistics Box and Whisker Plot

Upon examination of these statistics, it is reasonable to conclude that there is a denite relationship between the circumference of a curved geometrical gure and its diameter. This relationship can be found in the form of pi, a number approximating to about 3.14, however, the data shown above has a slightly higher median value of 3.18, which could easily be the result of human error in the measurement process. For example, the students might have improperly recorded the results of either their circumference or diameter measurement, or even measured incorrectly.
