SHM and Pi

  1. Apr 6, 2012 #1
    When i'm using formulas such as T = 2(pi) / w I thought Pi should be in Radians as w is in rad/sec yet when I look at an example it uses 3.14. Why is it 3.14 instead of 180?

    ##\pi## radians is equivalent to 180 degrees.

    Thanks. A major brain fart on my part.
