What is/are the equation/s required to calculate dimensions and construction of a frustum shaped plate in its flat form before rolling into cone shape?
Let a frustum of radii at two ends R1 and R2 (R1 < R2) respectively is to be constructed. Let the half angle of the cone be Q.
Hence, slant height of the end of radius R1,
l1 = ...
A general equation for a frustum-shaped plate is determined. A diagram of a cone frustum is included.
