COMMENTS

Angle (in radians) between an edge and (the normal of) a face of the regular tetrahedron. - R. J. Mathar, Feb 23 2012

Also known as magic angle; root of P_2(cos(theta)), with P_2(x) being second-order Legendre polynomial. - Stanislav Sykora, May 25 2012

From Stanislav Sykora, Nov 14 2013: (Start)

Also the angle between the body diagonal of a cube and an incident edge, and therefore the polar angle of the cone circumscribed to a cube from one of its vertices.

Also half of the tetrahedral angle (A156546).

In nuclear magnetic resonance, the angle, with respect to the direction of the main magnetic field, under which a solid sample needs to be spun in order to average to zero unwanted dipole-dipole spin interactions (the magic angle spinning, or MAS, technique). (end)
