The area of a field of view 2010-04-07
From Frank:
I know we have a field of view of 90 degrees and the distance we can cover is 6 miles. What is the area we can cover/view?
A formula would be nice to have since the diameter or distance of the wedge area can change and the degree of the field of view can also change.
Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.

The volume of a slice from a wedge 2008-10-16
From Jeff:
If I have a wedge shaped object (ie, a triangle of non-specific type extruded along a length) and it is sliced from the two-corner base at one end to the one-point tip at the other, what is the volume of the upper (smaller) part as a percentage of the whole? I hope I have explained it clearly enough. Thanks.
