I know it cuz I`ve seen my friggin` math prof`s do it a thousand times over, and it confused me every time.

Numbers only exist in the minds of men.

That being said: I love pi but I am on the pro-tau side.

As this video demonstrates you`d only need that for calculating there area of a circle.

Also the idea behind your graphic was already mentioned in this video. That is pi is equal to the circumference divided by the diameter of a circle.

Anything that involved a trigonomic function it would`ve been bad practice to use Hz as the frequency unit.

Funny thing is 1hz equals one entire wavelength in a second which would be that divided by 2pi in radians.

But for the sake of trigonometry lets run more numbers...

sine of pi = 0____________sine of tau = 0

sine of pi/2 = 1__________sine of tau/2 = 0

sine of pi/3 = sqrt(3)/2 _sine of tau/3 = sqrt(3)/2

sine of pi/4 = 1/sqrt(2)__sine tau/4 = 1

cosine of pi = -1__________cosine of tau = 1

cosine of pi/2 = 0_________cosine of tau/2 = -1

cosine of pi/3 = 1/2_______cosine of tau/3 = 1/2

cosine of pi/4 = 1/sqrt(2)_cosine of tau/4 = -1

any math wizz here can figure out tangents

I sprained my brain-bone as well.

It might be slightly more aesthetic for pure mathematics however when you jump to physics which requires the same level of beauty and simplicity this idea completely falls apart.

For those who have issues in math with angle measurements in radians just remember one circle = 360 degrees = 2pi rad. Also do yourself a favor and start estimating those 15% tips in your head whenever you go out to eat with your parents... it`ll make your life so much easier in math class.

oh god! its begun!
