Area of a Circle in Java

The formula for calculating area of a circle is,

Area = PI * r * r, where PI is a constant and r is the radius of the circle.

The following sample Java program calculates area of a circle. The radius of the circle is taken as user input from command line. The default Java language package contains a Math class which the following program uses for the value of PI.

import java.util.Scanner;
