: V = pi * [t^2 * sqrt(360^2 - t^2) + (360 - t)^2 * sqrt(t * (720 - t))] / [3 * 360^3]
: This should have "R^3" multiplied somewhere - otherwise it does not match dimensionally...
.......R = 1 !! (which is why you see no R's at all)
that's all we need to find the damn angle.
However, if we need a R<>1, then:
V = pi * R^3 * [t^2 * sqrt(360^2 - t^2) + (360 - t)^2 * sqrt(t * (720 - t))] / [3 * 360^3]
now that I've done all the work, you ONLY need to show us how to maximize that, Mr K :)
