Three Dimensional Angles?

  1. Mar 24, 2008 #1
    Three Dimensional Angles?!??!?!

    ok, this is a stretch. I have an idea. If there are angles, measured in units of 1/360th of a circle. what happens when you add the third dimension factor. I thought it would be somehow measured in units of like the area of a sphere divided by 360^2 maybe. The problem with area is that it changes depending on the size of the sphere. Then somehow I'm picturing a cone and a triangle. This is most easily applied to a cube, if there are more sides the 2 dimensional figure made for the cone would change.

    I would like to know if there is ay actualy study of what I;m trying to describe.

    *I would know if there is any actual study based on what I'm trying to explain.
