2)   Assume a machining process of taper turning. In this process, a large diameter of taper is 'D' and it is uniformly decreased to the small diameter of the taper 'd' at the horizontal length of tapered part of workpiece is 'L'. What is the correct formula for half of tapper angle (2α / 2)?

a. α = sin–1 ((D – d) / 2L)
b. α = cos–1 ((D – d) / 2L)
c. α = tan–1 ((D – d) / 2L)
d. α = cot–1 ((D – d) / 2L)
