Compound Rake

Where the rake is the combination of two angles the actual slope of the rake is a transcendent trigonometric function of those two angles. I ran off with the theater to avoid having to deal with algebra; and Trig is Algy’s bigger, meaner older brother.


I’ve been tossing around terms like; erect a perpendicular, strike an arc; geometry. Unlike what you may have thought in Middle School; Geometry is your friend.
