Calculating projected area?

Postby misho » Thu Nov 14, 2019 3:53 pm

A post on calculating volume reminded me of something on my to-do list:

Is there a method in Newton to calculate an area projected on a plane, of a given collision volume? This would be akin to calculating area of a shadow cast on ground under different lighting angles.

I need this in order to calculate reference area of a body, moving in a fluid, under different incidence angles.
