I want to find the equations for the circles (formed on the planes) when a sphere cuts the XY, YZ and XZ planes. What I am trying to achieve is a software application that will have a 3D cuboid and inside this cuboid there will be many spheres. Now I want to find the circles created by these spheres when they intersect with the planes. Thank you.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
