I googled this. Couldn't find my Mathmatice for plumbers and pipefitters book LOL

 

Set: The diameter is x
then 3.14*x2=226.865
x=2.925

Cant give you the answer but pi*R sq =3.142*Radius.squared gives square area with a given radius, so work it back, do it in mm the convert to inches so much easier, Rick

Hi you must understand that these questions you are getting, they are from some text book crank who has not seen a fitting in his life, I am 62 and been in the trade all my life and these questions are for text book quacks, not hands on fitters, there or two types of guys out there, them that can do the job, and them that can write/talk about it, them that can write about it sometimes seem to earn more money than them that do it, this is changing, become one of those who do the job, Rick
