METHOD 3 - PROTECTIVE ANGLE

This is a mathematical simplification of the rolling sphere method where the areas in green “G” and magenta “M” must be equal.
This is achieved by rolling the sphere up against a finial and scribing a line (red) whereby the area of “protection” (green) equals the “unprotected area” (magenta). α is the “Protective Angle”.
