    Remember Iíve posted this earlier.

    I need an equation for intersection of cylinders like x = f ( y, z ). Where x, y & z are the coordinates of the cylinders or distance from a fixed point. One cylinder is passing through a straight line and the other through a circle.
    Can somebody help me?

    Obviously it didnít help me, further information in order to facilitate are: 1) the straight cylinder merge with the circular one at normal. 2) Both cylinders have same diameter.

    I think I could help you, except your problem doesn't seem very concrete to me. I think I understand the idea of x, y, and z being specific distances from the origin, but I don't really understand the rest of what you are saying.

    Just because I think its fun and I like integrating, I would use calculus to find the volume of any odd looking object, but in order to do that you need to know a few things about the two cylinders.

    It is also entirely possible that this ends up to be a multivariable calc question in which case I am talking completely out of my ass.

    I also unfortuneately am a one language kind of guy. I can't read that website.
    The most important thing I have learned about the internet is that it needs lot more kindness and patience.
