A bit of an odd one this, but I am getting desperate and just stumbled across your very knowledgable forum, I wonder if you could help me? I race a car here in the UK and I'm designing some new parts to make us go faster, however I have come undone with my Math!
I need to divide a circle of 60mm diameter into 3 parts of equal area using two horizontal lines, so I need to know how far apart to space the lines, hope this makes sense, please see enclosed diagram if it doesn't! Please note, on the diagram it says volume this is because it is a tube, what I really mean for the purposes of this is equal Areas by correct spacings for the lines.
Although the theory and equations behind it would be useful, what I really need is an answer so I can get the order in for the parts!
Many thanks in advance for your help,
