Geometry3D - Final Problem 2
Find the radius r of a sphere inscribed into a right circular cone of altitude H and radius of a circular base R.
r = R·H ⁄ [R+√(R²+H²)]
Two vertices at the base of an isosceles triangle lie on a circle at the base of a right circular cylinder, while the third vertex of this isosceles triangle lies on a cylinder's side surface.
The length of the base of a triangle is a=6, its altitude is h=2, angle between a plane where our triangle is located and the plane of the base of a cylinder is β=30o.
What is the radius R of a cylinder?
R = 2√3
