ok, why is a circular detector bigger than the square detector ?

 

Circles aren't bigger or smaller than squares until constraints are added.

  1. If the constraint is a given perimeter, circles are bigger (area wise)
  2. If the constraint is maximum and minimum values of x and y, then squares are bigger.

The present constraints are of the second type.

...inside a cube the largest square that can fit in is not coplanar with the largest circle that can fit in.
