Can you give a simple answer to this one question please? Why do you insist on creating these slabs with a constant radius within each slab?
can u still not see that a radius height of 5 actually creates 5 cylinder slabs? it then adds the total volume of all the slabs together?

To begin you have a sphere then you can circumscribe the cylinder. Now you may divide the cylinder into slabs but for what purpose? You are confusing yourself with unnecessary complications. A sphere is 3D, a circle is 2D. You can't stack circles to create depth or height. Do YOU not see that?

pi may be correct friend. but only in it's complete state which is a recurring decimal. show me where u use the entirety of pi in any calculation and i will concede.
the minute you round off pi to 2,3 or 10 decimals places after the point to use in a calculation u are no longer using pi.. but a fraction of it so to speakedit on 21-5-2012 by 0mage because: (no reason given)

i see.
so u say there is an error? but it is a measurement error? even tho the measurement is used in calculation?

hahaha now ur definately fishing. the egyptians most certainly did not use base 2. but good on you. it would seem you know exactly where this is all coming from. or was that just a lucky guess?
again.. u cannot use a rounded infinite recurring decimal in calculations and achieve precision. it simply does not compute.
regarding dividing by 0. i do it all the time lol

how then do u use pi in calculations without rounding it off at some point within it's infinitely recurring decimal?
u must round it off at some point no?
thus again.. the minute.. the second u round off pi to how many ever places after the point you are no longer working with true pi. and the ramifications are most certainly not negligible. see: man's incapability to create a perfect circle or sphere.

lol a compass. ur only hope of discerning the 'method of construction'
compare the method of construction used by a compass. describe the process used. examining the results will give you the value for completed pi with its full set of infinite recurring decimals.
now when you calculate or work it backwards.. you most likely will round pi of to 2 decimal places at 3.14. completely ignoring the infinitely recurring decimals. do u think it will give u the exact same circle you just examined?
this is what it should do. failure to use true pi in full form without rounding cannot give u the exact same circle. im sure u see this?

What is the size of a ball?

Physically, the closest you can get to perfection is the use of a compass, theoretically, the closest you can get is the untruncated value of pi. You cannot have both just as you cannot have life and death at the same time.... unless of course you are a certain feline belonging to a guy named Heisenberg, but that would be theoretical as well....and physical...yet still theoretical depending on the physal state of the viewer
