COMMENTS

Dihedral angle in radians of regular tetrahedron.
Arccos(1/3) is the central angle of a cube, made by the center and two neighboring vertices.  Clark Kimberling, Feb 10 2009
Also the complementary tetrahedral angle, PiA156546, and therefore related to the magic angle (Pi2*A195696).  Stanislav Sykora, Jan 23 2014
Polar angle (or apex angle) of the cone that subtends exactly one third of the full solid angle.  Stanislav Sykora, Feb 20 2014

FORMULA

arccos(1/3) = arctan(2*sqrt(2)) = 2*arcsin(sqrt(3)/3) = arcsin(2*sqrt(2)/3).
