Finding the Center of a Disk
Date: 12/13/2002 at 12:52:56 From: Kenneth Lentz Subject: Find center of solid disk? I need to find the center of a solid disk to bore a hole. I tried three intersecting diameters at 60 degree arcs but this was not accurate enough (I'm not sure of the true diameters).

Take a carpenter's square and place it on the circle so the right angle is on the circumference of the circle and both legs of the square cross the circumference of the circle. Mark where each leg crosses the circumference, and connect these points - there is your diameter. - Doctor Rick, The Math Forum http://mathforum.org/dr.math/
