Two Oblate Spheroids (Posted on 2014-07-04) Difficulty: 3 of 5
There are two balls each having the precise shape of an Oblate Spheroid, and each having the equatorial radius and the polar radius respectively as 125 cm and 80 cm, lying on a perfectly horizontal floor on their respective polar axes and touching each other.

What is the diameter of the largest spherical ball that can pass through the gap between the oblate spheroids and the floor?
