 For a similar Question and my Comments on it, see: http://answers.google.com/answers/threadview?id=325446 In that case the issues concerned a point trajectory and a sphere or a right circular cone. regards, mathtalk-ga

 If the problem is unclear this should help. Given a Cylinder defined by some line and a radius and another line for the particles linear path. Find where the particle hits the cylinder, the 2 points of intersection, the one point of intersection or the case of no point of contact. Both the particle's path and the sphere go to infinity in both directions. Hope this helps, TFLY
