## Scala – Calculate Area of Circle

Here, we will read the radius of the circle from the user and calculate the area of the circle. After that, we will print the result on the console screen.

## Scala code to calculate the area of the circle

The source code to calculate the area of the circle is given below. The given program is compiled and executed on the ubuntu 18.04 operating system successfully.

```// Scala program to calculate the area of circle

object Sample{
def main(args:Array[String]){
var area:Float=0

//Caculate the area of circle

println("Area of circle: "+area)
}
}
```

## Output

```Enter radius: 4.2
Area of circle: 55.389595
```

## Explanation

In the above program, we used an object-oriented approach to create the program. Here, we created an object Sample. We defined main() function. The main() function is the entry point for the program.

In the main() function, we created two float variables radius, area, that are initialized with 0. Then we read the value of radius from the user and calculate the area of the circle. After that, we printed the result on the console screen.
