Unless you have a sliding T bevel, don't bother with the angle. Just use direct measurements. Measure the long and short parallel sides, then the perpendicular distance between the sides (use a square with a ruler or tape measure against it). Also, measure this perpendicular in a few places to be sure they are truly parallel. Finally, to be sure it is actually isosceles, take a square and straight edge to find the point on the long side directly opposite the outside corner. Then measure the distance from this point to the inside corner. Either transfer this measurement to your work, or repeat at the other side to be sure they are the same.

a pop out bay window starts and ends with 22.5 degree angles at both ends of all plates. overlap the top plate with a 45 degree angle to hold the sides together.

I take it you want the angle closest to the inside of the room. Subtract the two parallel sides of the trapezoid and divide by 2. Call this length x. Measure the vertical distance between the front and back of the intended seat. The angle = 2nd Function (Tan-1) [height / x] That may be too much of nothing that you want. Maybe you are just trying to cut out the seat. Start with your rectangle's dimensions. Subtract the bay windows width on the outside from the longest inside dimension. Divide by 2. Measure that far in from the part of the seat that will sit next to the othside part of the bay window.

**Rayner Originally Answered: Angles of cleavage on Fluorite?**

Fluorite has a cubic crystal system, the common form of the crystals normally being cubes though more rarely octahedra or tetrahexahedra. The cleavage is perfect and is parallel to the octahedron. I looked this up in 'Rutley's Elements of Mineralogy'. It is safe to assume that the directions of cleavage follow the simple faces of the naturally occurring crystals of the cubes or octahedra. Wikipedia further states 'Octahedral cleavage occurs on the {111} crystal planes, forming octahedra shapes for a crystal with cubic symmetry. Diamond and fluorite exhibit perfect octahedral cleavage. Octahedral cleavage is seen in common semiconductors. For lower-symmetry crystals, there will be a smaller number of {111} planes.'

If you know the lengths of the two bases and the depth of the isosceles trapezoid, here is a way to find the acute base angles. Subtract the smaller base from the larger, then divide this difference by two. (A picture will really help you understand this) The acute base angle is then tan^-1 (d/x), where d is the depth of the trapezoid and x is the number you calculated above.

Ok.....I'll try to get this all in. Driver I would stay in the 9.5 to 10.5 range. 3 wood about a 16 degree.....and hybrid depending on the length you will need for long par 3's Probably around a 19 degree. Irons are standardized through the set. Not knowing your swing speed its hard to guess at the flex to recommend for you...I'd go with a regular flex most likely.....best bet is to hit a 5 iron and a driver on a launch monitor to get a better handle on what clubs to buy. and what flex shafts to get.
