**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,

Chip.
