Area of circle as a limit Maths Calculus
Area.JPG

Overview:

The process of calculating the area of a circle as the limit of the sum of the areas of interior triangles.

Starting with just one triangle, the process is followed as the number of triangles goes to infinity.


Suggestions:

Check the calculation on each step.

Can you think of proving in a similar way the value of the area or the volume of another simple geometrical body?
