The sides of a 5-pointed star inscribed in a circle 2021-09-18
From Scott:
Is there a calculation for the length of each side of a five-pointed star? I am not worried about area but if I have a circle with a 7.5 foot radius and place a star inside it, how can I measure the lines creating the star?

A 3 dimensional 5 pointed star 2001-11-08
From Kent:
I am looking for a formula that will give me a layout for a 3 dimensional 5 pointed star. I want to form it out of sheet metal, using 5 polygons and soldering them at the apex. Can you please help me with this? I would like to be able to give the formula the height of the star from the bottom two points to the top point and also how deep the star is. Thank you very much!
