I have attached two images showing my problem.
I have two pipes, each with a 45 Deg elbow.
>The pipes are at different heights (H).
> The Pipes do not slope.
>The height of the pipes is known and the angle between the pipes is known.
>The elbows can be positioned anywhere along the pipe centre lines.
>The elbows can also be swivelled 360 deg around the pipe centre lines.
Q) From my attached images, how do I calculate distances 'L' and 'W'?
