The angles refer to position of the split ie 45 degree = Diagonal, 180 = Horizontal

Thanks for the reply Barrie. It's obvious when you think about it. Feel a bit dim for asking now!

Never such a thing as a "Stupid" question...

You know that reminds me, when I used TA Physics labs I said the same thing to try to get people to ask more questions. Obviously, some wise guy then said, "Where do babies come from?"

While not a salient question for a dynamics lab, it did loosen up the mood and people starting being more social.

Just read the "stupid comments" thread and it certainly doesn't reflect my experience of the forum. My stupid questions have been very kindly received. It's always simple when you know how.

However you phrase it: Whenever I was training police staff and immigration staff, there was always that type of "Stupid" question to be prepared for
