Elliptical section of a right circular cone by HCR

Geometry Level 5

A right circular cone, with apex angle \(\alpha =60^\circ\), is thoroughly cut with a smooth plane inclined at an acute angle \(\theta =60^\circ\) with the geometrical axis to generate an elliptical section. (As shown in the above diagram). Find the eccentricity of elliptical section generated.
