I have a cone on the z axis with his summit on height h meeting a cylinder on the x axis. The expressions should be:

cylinder: y

^{2}+z

^{2}=r

^{2}

cone: x

^{2}+y

^{2}=(z-h)

^{2}tan(phi)

^{2}

If we consider any straight line on the cone, what is the length of this line inside the cylinder?

Is it possible to get a theoretical exprssion of this?

I tried the approche of the distance between two points, but i need a third equation to know the three coordinates of each points. Any ideas?

Thanks a lot,
