# SciPy Constant

The scipy.constant package is available with a wide range of constants, which is used extensively in the scientific field. There are various physical, mathematical constants and units that we can import the required constants and use them as per needed.

**List of Mathematical constant**

The scipy.constant provides the following list of mathematical constants.

Sr. No. | Constants | Description |
---|---|---|

1. | pi | pi |

2. | golden | Golden ratio |

Consider the following example of **scipy.constant**. Here we compare the ‘pi’ value by importing different modules.

**Output:**

The above code will give the following output. As we can observe that both values are same.

sciPy - pi Value = 3.141592653589793116 math - pi Value = 3.141592653589793116

### Physical Constants

The **scipy.constant** package provides the number of physical constants. The most commonly used physical constants are the following:

---|---|---|

1. | c | Speed of light in vaccum |

2. | speed_of_light | Speed of light in vaccum |

3. | G | Standard acceleration of gravity |

4. | G | Newton Constant of gravitation |

5. | E | Elementry charge |

6. | R | Molar gas constant |

7. | Alpha | Fine-structure constant |

8. | N_A | Avagadro constant |

9. | K | Boltzmann constant |

10 | Sigma | Stefan-Boltzmann constant σ |

11. | m_e | Electron mass |

12. | m_p | Proton mass |

13. | m_n | Neutron Mass |

14. | H | Plank Constant |

15. | Plank constant | Plank constant h |

The **scipy.constant** provides the **find()** function, which returns a list of **physical_constant** keys containing a given string.

Consider the following example:

**Output:**

['Boltzmann constant', 'Boltzmann constant in Hz/K', 'Boltzmann constant in eV/K', 'Boltzmann constant in inverse meters per kelvin', 'Stefan-Boltzmann constant']
