### Points, Lines, and Planes

You are here.

In fact, you cannot see a true point.

Lines are 1-dimensional objects that have only length. Lines continue forever in both directions.

A ray of light has a starting point (like the sun) and continues forever in the same direction.

A ray is also defined by 2 points. absorbed or reflected.

Lines can be parallel. be perpendicular.

Believe it or not, this is possible. parallel either?Let’s consider a 3-dimensional rectangular prism.

A skewer raises your “dinner” off the surface of the grill. The skewer does not intersect the grill, and the skewer is not parallel to the grill.

Lines can be… grill. The skewer does not intersect the grill, and the skewer is not parallel to the grill.
