# Excel/Mathematical constants in Excel.

Question
Dear Jerry

http://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/tutorial/MathematicalConstants.html

1. Is it possible to input mathematical constants in cell/s using
functions in Excel ?.

For example : PI, e, Pythagoras constant, Omega Constant, Ramanujan - Soldner constant, Golden Ratio, Legendre's constant etc ?.

2. Will it be useful to create functions for inputting mathematical constants in excel spreadsheets (if not available) ?.

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

The whole point of Excel is easy substitutional math, so any constant you need can be entered into a reference cell and used in your other calculations makes things easier, so I'd say, "whatever you need in your projects".

If you Google "Excel Golden Ratio" for example you'll see how others use Excel and this constant.

BTW, crossposting the same question on multiple forums feels harmless, but in many instances results in somebody wasting their time.  This particular question, perhaps more harmless than others, but if it were a normal Excel "how to resolve this scenario" type question, certainly someone would spend time giving you an answer you've already acquired elsewhere.  As wasting people's time is certainly not your intention, I'd thought it best to offer the reminder.
