Calculate Area and Circumference of Circle

This program asks the user to enter the radius of the circle and displays the area and circumference of the circle on the basis of entered radius.

You need to know the formula for area and circumference of the circle (included below)

Variables :

1. radius : (Datatype int): to represent the radius of the circle.

2. PI : (Datatype float): static variable to represent constant PI value up to 3 decimal places i.e 3.142

3. area : (Datatype float): to store the result of the area of the circle being computed.

4. circumference : (Datatype float): to store the result of the circumference of the circle being computed.

Functions :

printf() : is used to display something on the console/screen. Format specifier %d in printf function is used to display a int variable on screen and %f to display float value. \n is used to add a newline

scanf() : is used to fetch data inputted by the user on the console/screen using the keyboard. %d in scanf is indicated that inputted text is of type int and %f for float value.

Formula :

Area of Circle: π x r2

Circumfrence of Circle: 2 x π x r

void main() {

    int radius;
	static float PI = 3.142;
	float area;
	float circumfrence;

//	clrscr();
	printf("Program to calculate Area and Circumference of Circle :  \n\n");

	printf("Enter the radius of Circle : ");
	scanf("%d", &radius);

	area = PI*radius*radius;

	circumfrence = 2*PI*radius;

	printf("\n\nArea of circle with radius %d = %f  \n\n",radius,area);

	printf("Circumference of circle with radius %d = %f  \n\n",radius,circumfrence);

//	getch();

Output :
Program to calculate Area and Circumference of Circle :
Enter the radius of Circle : 5
Area of circle with radius 5 = 78.550003
Circumference of circle with radius 5 = 31.420000
