Two great circles 
20111006 

From Jean: "Two great circles lying in planes that are perpendicular to each
other are drawn on a wooden sphere of radius "a". Part of the sphere
is then shaved off in such a way that each cross section of the
remaining solid that is perpendicular to the common diameter of the
two great circles is a square whose vertices lie on these circles.
Find the volume of this solid."
I don't understand the geometry of the problem.
Can you please explain the problem and if possible draw a diagram for me
? Answered by Chris Fisher.
