Re: Torroid Formula

```Just a bit of algebra.. no need for MathCad..

Given X and D2 to calculate D1

square both sides

1.4^2 *(1.2781^2 - 2*1.2781*(d2/d1) + d2^2/d1^2) * pi  * d2 * (d1-d2) = x^2

multiply through by d1^2

(1.4^2* 1.2781^2 *d1^2 - 2*1.4*1.4*d2*d1 + d2*d2*1.4*1.4)*pi *(d2*d1 -
d2*d2) = x*x*d1*d1

collect terms

aaa * d1*d1*d2*d1 - bbb * d2 * d1*d2*d1 + ccc*d2*d2*d2*d1 -aaa*d1*d1*d2*d2
+ bbb*d2*d1*d2*d2 - ccc * d2*d2*d2*d2 = x*x*d1*d1/pi
aaa = 1.4*1.4 * 1.2781*1.2781
bbb = 2 * 1.4 * 1.4
ccc = 1.4 * 1.4

rearrange

(aaa * d2)  *d1*d1*d1
(- bbb * d2*d2   -aaa*d2*d2- x*x/pi )*d1*d1

(+ ccc*d2*d2*d2 + bbb*d2*d2*d2) *d1
- ccc * d2*d2*d2*d2

= 0

now, all you gotta do (hah) is solve the cubic equation in D1..
