    Around is an adverb having wide applications to impart proper meaning to a statement. Some of the important uses are:
    In the area or vicinity
    He is hanging around for the last one hour.
    By a circular or circuitous route
    He came all the way around the city.
    Used of movement to or among many different places or in no particular direction
    The news gets around soon. He needs advice from someone who's been around.
    (of quantities) imprecise but fairly close to correct
    This machine weighs around a hundred pounds"
    In or to a reversed position or direction
    Suddenly she turned around
    It is also used as preposition meaning: Approximately (especially of a date)
    The church was built around 1840"

    Round is an adjective meaning: Having a circular shape. It is mostly used to express mathematical expression.
    The earth is round. Make the final figures round nearest to $10.
