What shape do I say a football is? 2005-11-14
From Peter:
I am a 43 year old man. I am no longer in school, I have a bachelors degree. I like to tell stories about sports in ways to make people think about the amount of time they devote to the sports. For example, while attending a church in Chicago on the north side, I would pass by Wrigley field. I began to call it the church of the flying orb or sphere. Now if I want to tell a similar story about football (not soccer), what shape do I say a football is?

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!
