#### Solution Preview

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 = ...

#### Solution Summary

A general equation for a frustum-shaped plate is determined. A diagram of a cone frustum is included.
