Two formulas for calculating values.
1. Cone Formula: For calculating the angle of the peak of a cone and other characteristics based on the angle of a wedge removed from a circle and the radius of the circle. Useful for making rocket nose cones, conical lift cups, etc.
2. Cluster Formula: For calculating the minimum required inner diameter (or radius) of a tube to put 3 cylinders of a known outer diameter (or radius) inside it. Useful for cramming 3 comets, salutes, or other inserts into shell; making an enclosure for 3 batteries; clustering 3 rocket motors into a fuselage tube, etc.
