#AskEden - Wrong Measurements?

comatose-kitty comatose-kitty
I bought O2 Max which, on its product page says it is 5 3/4 in circumference and 2 1/4 in diameter...BUT then I checked out the Lone Star product page, which says it is 5 3/4 circumference and 1 7/8 in diameter...

Wait. What? That's where I'm lost. Can someone explain this to me? Same circumference different diameter.

If I'm picturing this right, it probably has to do with the shape of the toys.

The diameter is a cross-section across the widest part, while the circumference goes around the toy's perimeter. So say you had a toy that, when viewed from the top down, had a slightly more oval shape. The diameter would be greater, but it might still have the circumference of a similarly-sized, perfectly round toy.

I think that's how it works, anyway. Not sure if that's the case with these particular toys, though.

Oooooooooh, long forgotten math…

circumference = pi · diameter

c = pi · d

5.75 = 3.14 · d

1.83 = d

It appears the product page might be wrong (which is why I always measure when I review )

Can someone check my work?

Your work is correct.

I find that when there is a discrepancy between cir. and dia. on a product page, the cir. is usually right.

Thank you kindly. I figure it's time to dust the math off if I intend to make my own toy box.

This. If a toy is ovular (ovalish) the diameter will, in fact, be larger than the calculated circumference. It's a bit difficult to calculate in comparison with a true circle.

Here's an explanation which does have some math mumbo jumbo if that's your thing: link
