Given a random point in a funnel area in 2d I'm trying to find the radius of the circle that has center in the bisector of that funnel.
This is for a geometry program so I can extract a lot of information. I think I'm just missing a small detail but not sure what.
This is the situation. I'm given the center of a funnel and there is a circle that can goes along the bisector of that funnel, expanding or contracting until the edges of the funnel depending on the distance. I'm given a point P as the image shows. I'm trying to find the radius of circle that this point belongs to. Obviously there are 2 circles that contain that point however I want the one showed in the image, to the right of the point P. I have the distance D to that point from the center of the funnel and the angle alpha it makes with the bisector. All the letters A, B, C, E are easily obtainable however I can't seem to find the a way to use them to calculate the radius of the circle. I also want to calculate the distance from the circle center to the center of the funnel but that is easy if I have the radius. Any ideas or hints?
