# Geometry/Mathematical Constants in Excel

Question
Dear Prof Azeem

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Excel‎

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mathematical_constant

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

Hi Prashant,

Pi is certainly a constant in Excel, and e can be obtained using EXP(1).  Users can define their own functions, constants included.  The usefulness depends on the frequency of use of the constant, but it's a nice feature to have.
