Hello, I've been investigating plots of surfaces in space, and I've encountered the classic problem of finding the volume between two perpendicularly intersecting circular cylinders of the same radius (and I will be working on the case for three cylinders as well). The resulting volumes are very difficult to visualize. I searched for it on the web, and have seen how they look, and some even had instructions on how to do it in another system. With Mathematica, I have been able to examine the intersections (using ContourPlot3D, drawing the contours at 1), but I don't know how to to customize the range of plotting so it shows the exact volume of intersection, only cylinders with straight edges. I have already solved both of the problems, but how would I be able to examine intersections of surfaces in general, with Mathematica? thanks in advance, Chris please send any email replies to choni at ucla.edu -- Chris Tiee "Choni" | Primary email: choni at ucla.edu Alternate emails: choni at cyberjunkie.com, ch0ni at hotmail.com -- Chris Tiee "Choni" | Primary email: choni at home.com Alternate emails: choni at cyberjunkie.com, ch0ni at hotmail.com Sent via Deja.com http://www.deja.com/ Before you buy.
