Here's a question that I thought up while shooting darts through a five-bladed ceiling fan. I'm lazy, so I'll use symbols for the constants in the equation.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Say I have a five-bladed fan of radius R, with a blade width W, spinning at angular velocity V. I shoot a dart of length L through the fan at a speed S. What is the probability that I hit the fan?

Just do the equation, I'll fill in the measured constants later.
