COMMENTS

The ratio of the volume of a regular icosahedron to the volume of the circumscribed sphere (with circumradius a*sqrt(10 + 2*sqrt(5))/4 = a*A019881, where a is the icosahedron's edge length; see MathWorld link). For similar ratios for other Platonic solids, see A165922, A049541, A165952, and A165953. A063723 shows the order of these by size.

FORMULA

sqrt(10 + 2*sqrt(5))/(2*Pi) = sqrt(10 + 2*A002163)/(2*A000796) = 2*sin(2*Pi/5)/Pi = 2*sin(A019694)/A000796 = 2*sin(72 deg)/Pi = 2*A019881/A000796 = 2*A019881*A049541 = (2/Pi)*sin(72 deg) = A060294*A019881.
