Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have two known points on a sphere P1(x1, y1, z1) and P2(x2, y2, z2). I know the angle between them on the plane from the origin.

I wish to divide that angle by n to create n - 1 new points on the sphere surface on the arc between P1 and P2.

How do i find the x, y, z of these points. Or at least the first point with n = 3?

(n = 2 is done by midpoint of chord and scaling).

tia,

Bryan
