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

I'd like to compute the solide angle defined by a cone whose angle θ is known.

I tried with the definition but I probably mistook since it lead me to compute an integral worth...0.

I then tried with a rule of three, but the result I get is clearly wrong too.

Could you explain me how to proceed?
