I'm looking for a formula that will give me the surface length of a 3d object when intersected at a specific angle?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For example if 1" wide object which is 14" long is at 90 degrees (i.e. vertical) to a line, it will be 1" wide when sitting on the line. It will be 14" wide when it is parallel or at 0 degrees to the line. How wide (surface area) will the 1" column be if tilted so it is at 60 degrees to the line?

Thank you,

Jim
