G0 to circle math. A=Pi R squared or R= sqrt of A/Pi. Pi =3.141592 A is the area of a circle. R is the radius of the circle. With that formula, Area is proportional to Radius. The larger the circle the larger the radius.
awesome!!!
now lets try that
you will need pen, paper and built in microsoft calculator in scentific mode
Problem1:
"pair of 9 inch long rails intersect each other at 12.5 degree angle in their middle point. the crossing is later upgraded to form an ideal double slip switch (diverging path starts at the very ends of lines).
a. calculate the radius of a curve train will be negotiating while taking the diverging path.
b. calculate radius if the slip switch is not ideal - diverging path points located 2" from rail ends."
problem 2:
"user BNSF_affictionado32 just joined the
www.bestMRR_forum_out_there.com . user wants to build a shelf layout with shelves 24 inches deep. user wants maximum possible curve radius in the corner where two shelves meet for his 8 axle loco. negelecting the width of the rail, calculate the maximum radius posible withot the rail hanging of the benchwork"
