%N Decimal expansion of sqrt(3).

%C "The square root of 3, the 2nd number, after root 2, to be proved irrational, by Theodorus."

%C Length of a diagonal between any vertex of the unit cube and the one corresponding (opposite) vertex not part of the three faces meeting at the original vertex. (Diagonal is hypotenuse of a triangle with sides 1 and sqrt(2)). Hence the diameter of the sphere circumscribed around the unit cube; the ratio of the diameter of any sphere to the edge length of its inscribed cube. - _Rick L. Shepherd_, Jun 09 2005

%C The square root of 3 is the length of the minimal Y-shaped (symmetrical) network linking three points unit distance apart. - _Lekraj Beedassy_, Apr 12 2006

%C Continued fraction expansion is 1 followed by {1, 2} repeated. - _Harry J. Smith_, Jun 01 2009

%C Also, tan(Pi/3) = 2 sin(Pi/3). - _M. F. Hasler_, Oct 27 2011

%C Surface of regular tetrahedron with unit edge. - _Stanislav Sykora_, May 31 2012

%C This is the case n=6 of Gamma(1/n)*Gamma((n-1)/n)/(Gamma(2/n)*Gamma((n-2)/n)) = 2*cos(Pi/n), therefore sqrt(3) = A175379*A203145/(A073005*A073006). - _Bruno Berselli_, Dec 13 2012

%C Ratio of base length to leg length in the isosceles "vampire" triangle, that is, the only isosceles triangle without reflection triangle. The product of cosines of the internal angles of a triangle with sides 1, 1 and sqrt(3) and all similar triangles is -3/8. Hence its reflection triangle is degenerate. See the link below. - _Martin Janecke_, May 09 2013

%C Half of the surface of regular octahedron with unit edge (A010469), and one fifth that of a regular icosahedron with unit edge (i.e., 2*A010527). - _Stanislav Sykora_, Nov 30 2013

%C Diameter of a sphere whose surface area equals 3*Pi. More generally, the square root of x is also the diameter of a sphere whose surface area equals x*Pi. - _Omar E. Pol_, Nov 11 2018
