  Longest Pi Chain: Monroe students set world record (Video)

 
MONROE, CT, USA -- In celebration of Pi Day, Masuk High School students, with help from local preschoolers, assembled a pi paper chain made of 75,000 links, using a different color for each of the ten digits of pi - setting the new world record for the
Longest Pi Chain.

  The previous Guinness world record for the Longest Pi Chain has 65,000 links.

  Guinness World Records also recognized the longest paper chain by an individual: it measures 327.1 m (1,073 ft 1.93 in) long and was made by Christopher Potts (UK) in Kimberworth, Rotherham.

  When stretched out, the chain is more than a mile long, said Mary Ahlers, head of the high school math department.

  "I knew pi was long, but I never knew it was this long," sophomore Austin Vuchla, 15, said.

  Pi is an irrational number that represents the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. Its decimal representation never ends or repeats. Mathematicians have thus far computed 5 trillion digits of the decimal expression.

  Different shades of colored paper represented different numbers on the paper pi chain.

  About 30 students moved the chain from the library to the school gymnasium on a large tarp. They then laid it out in a circle formation, wrapping it around itself until it was several layers thick.
