## Related Questions If two distinct planes intersect, therefore their intersection is a line. Angles are formed by the intersection of two planes. A line. When two planes intersect, their intersection is a line. If there are two unique, non-parallel planes in space, they will intersect, and their intersection will be a line. ONLY a line can be formed by the intersection of two planes...and always. The intersection of two planes is a line. The intersection of two lines can be any of the following:NothingA single pointAn entire line (that means the two lines are NOT distinct) The intersection of two planes is never a point. It's usually a line. But if the planes have identical characteristics, then their intersection is a plane. And if the planes are parallel, then there's no intersection. The intersection of two planes is a line. (or a massive explosion...lol) Yes, the intersection of 2 planes is a line. A line is the intersection of two planes. The angle between the planes is called the "dihedral angle". Two planes that intersect are simply called a plane to plane intersection. When they intersect, the intersection point is simply called a line. The intersection of two planes is one straight line. YES. The intersection of two planes always makes a line. A line is at least two points. A line.Unless the two planes are the same, in that case a plane. In analytical geometry, you equate the equations of the two planes and simplify. There is no "the" since there are infinitely many non-parallel planes. Two non-parallel planes are planes that intersect in a line. Two distinct planes will intersect in one straight line. I had to cross a busy intersection on my walk to school. A line can be considered as the intersection of two separate infinite planes.  The intersection of two planes or faces makes an edge. Yes. A line can be the intersection of two planes, or any number of planes. A real-world example would be the central axis (axle) of a paddlewheel on a steamboat, which would be coplanar with all of the planes represented by the individual paddles. A single line is similarly the intersection of perpendicular planes. No. Two planes may be parallel and so may not intersect. Also, any line is the intersection of infinitely many planes, not just two. It is the intersection of two planes or the line joining two vertices. ###### Math and ArithmeticGeometryEducationExample Sentences Copyright © 2020 Multiply Media, LLC. All Rights Reserved.
