Planes in the Space

# Intersection of Two Planes

Two arbitrary planes may be parallel, intersect or coincide:   Parallel Planes Intersecting Planes Coincident Planes
• Parallel planes: Parallel planes are planes that never cross. The ceiling of a room (assuming it’s flat) and the floor are parallel planes (though true planes extend forever in all directions).

• Intersecting planes: Intersecting planes are planes that cross, or intersect. When planes intersect, the place where they cross forms a line. The floor and a wall of a room are intersecting planes, and where the floor meets the wall is the line of intersection of the two planes.

• Coincident planes: Two planes are coincident when they are the same plane. In general, two planes are coincident if the equation of one can be rearranged to be a multiple of the equation of the other

How to find the relationship between two planes.

Given two planes:

Form a system with the equations of the planes and calculate the ranks.

r = rank of the coefficient matrix
r'= rank of the augmented matrix

The relationship between the two planes can be described as follow:

 Position r r' Intersecting 2 2 Parallel 1 2 Coincident 1 1

State the relationship between the planes: 1 1 3 -1 Therefore r=2 and r'=2. They are Intersecting Planes.

State the relationship between the planes:

Parallel Planes

State the relationship between the planes:

Coincident Planes

 Planes = 8x+2y-6z+7=0 and = -4x+9y+2z+9=0 are: Parallel Coincident Intersecting
