Some technical terms to know about

Angle between two lines.

B. Angle between a line and a plane.

C.Intersection of two planes.

D.Angle between two planes.

E.A line of greatest slope.

A. Angle between two lines

Whenever ambiguous, always refer to the acute angle.

B.Angle between a line and a plane

• A’ is the projection of the point A onto the plane  if AA’ is perpendicular to 

A

A’

D.Angle between a plane and a line

• Line segment A’B’is the projection of A on the plane 

B’

B.Angle between a line and a plane

• If the line AB intersects the line at A, then we say that B’ is the projection of B on  and AB is the line of projection

B.A line and a plane(2)

(a)If the line is parallel to the plane, we cannot find the point of intersection

L

B.A line and a plane(3)

(b) A normal of a plane is a line perpendicular to every line lying on the plane

B.A line and a plane(1)

(c)If a line is not parallel to the plane, then we can find the point of intersection.

B. Angle between a line and a plane

• QN is a perpendicular to the plane ABCD.

• PN is the projection of

• PQ on the plane ABCD

• is the angle between

• the line PQ and the

• plane ABCD.

C.Angle between 2 planes(1)

Eg. Two walls which are

opposite to each other

(a)Two parallel planes

1

2

C.Angle between two planes(2)

(b)Line of intersection of the planes

1

E.g.

2

C. Angle between two planes

Find the line of intersection.

Construct two lines which lie on the planes such that both of them are perpendicular to the line of intersection

Can you now define the angle between two planes?

A

B

E. Line of greatest slope

• If a horizontal plane which intersects an inclined plane ( ) at AB and L is a line on , L is the line of greatest slope on  if L is perpendicular to AB.

L

E. Line of greatest slope

• In the figure , XYABand XYCD are two intersecting planes which XYCD is inclined and XYAB is horizontal , PQ is a line on XYCD and perpendicular to XY。

• Notice that  > 

• The angle between the line of greatest slope and the horizontal plane is also the angle between the planes
