 This seems very simple unless I'm not understanding the question? BTW... your either saying circumference when you're actually meaning diameter, or you need to find the diameter from the circumference C=D*PI All you're asking for is the angle of each measuring device vector relative to the center of the cylinders, "NOT" the position of the measuring device. It becomes a simple triangle problem... so what do you know? You know the lengths of all 3 sides of each triangle (one for each sensor). 1.) The first two are the radii of the cylinders, you know this ahead of time (diameter/2) 2.) The third length is the difference between the 2 measurements from the individual sensor Knowing the three lengths, and being unconcerned with orientation/position you simply trig out the 3 angles of the triangle.
