The circumference to diameter formula
Diameter and circumference are lengths related to each other — the higher the diameter, the higher the circumference. The circumference to diameter formula connects these variables in a single equation:
d = c/π
where:
d
stands for the diameter;c
stands for the circumference; andπ
is the pi number.
If, on the other side, you're interested in how to calculate circumference from the diameter, you can solve for c
in the above equation:
c = π × d
💡 Did you know?
As you can imagine from the above equations, the number π
is a constant equal to the circumferencetodiameter ratio of a circle (π = c/d
). If you divide the circumference by the diameter, independently of the size, it'll always be 3.14159265...
How to find circumference from diameter: an example
Let's look at an example. Suppose you want to find the circumference of a 5 cm diameter circle. These would be the steps to follow:

Use the appropriate equation, which, in this case, is the circumference to diameter formula:
c = πd

Input the diameter in the equation:
c = π × (5 cm) = 15.708 cm

That's it. Also, check your results using our circumference to diameter calculator. Input 5 cm in the diameter box. Your result should also be 15.708 cm.
What is the circumference of a 6foot diameter circle?
18.8496 feet. To convert diameter to circumference:
 Take the diameter.
 Multiply it by the number pi (π).
 In this case, the circumference equals:
π × 6 ft = 18.8496 ft
.
How do I get diameter from circumference?
Divide the circumference value by the number pi (π), or use the formula d = c/π
. That's how you find the diameter of a circle with its circumference.
