I am fairly new to this forum and since I am not directly from a mathmetics background I recently ran into a problem I cannot solve.
What I am trying to do is to intersect a cone at a specific angle and want to receive the minimum radius of curvature. I know how to do it for a cylinder and I also know that I will get either an ellipse, a parabola or a hyperbole for a conic section, but I cannot find a source for either the euqtion of the intersection nor the minimum radius of curvature/curvature itself.
I found some theoretical proofs for the different intersections, but unfortunately the math behind it was a bit too high for me.
Is there maybe a short and clear answer to this question (for a stupid engineer as myself)? Or can someone refer me to an other sourve where I could the infromation from? I would be more than happy to hear from you! Thanks in advance!
