# What occurs when two planes intersect?

The intersection of two planes is a line.

### Three planes may all intersect each other at exactly one point?

Three planes may all intersect each other at exactly one point. This commonly occurs when there is one straight plane and two other planes intersect it at acute or obtuse angles.

### If two planes intersect do they intersect in exactly one plane?

No, two planes do not intersect in exactly one plane unless the planes are exactly overlapping, making one plane. In Euclidean Geometry two planes intersect in exactly one line.

### If two planes intersect what is their intersection called?

A line. When two planes intersect, their intersection is a line.

### Where do two planes intersect?

In geometry, two planes intersect in a line. The only time this is not true is if the two planes are parallel to each other.

### How many Two planes intersect in exactly?

Two distinct planes will intersect in one straight line.

### When two planes intersect do they intersect in a straight line?

Yes. If two planes are not coincident (the same plane) and are not parallel, then they intersect in one straight line.

### Can two horizontal planes intersect?

No, horizontal planes run parallel to each other, so they do not intersect, but two vertical planes can intersect. Imagine the pages of a books as several planes. When you stand the book up, they are all vertical, but they all intersect at the book spine.

### Can a given line be in two planes?

Two planes intersect at a line. The line where they intersect pertains to both planes. In the same manner, if infinitely many planes intersect each other at the same line, then that line pertains to the infinitely many planes.

### What do you call two planes that intersect?

Two planes that intersect are simply called a plane to plane intersection. When they intersect, the intersection point is simply called a line.

### What is a geometric solid with two surfaces and one that is curved?

There are many options. Amongst them: An ellipsoid (including a sphere) intersected by two planes which do not, themselves intersect within the shape; A paraboloid intersected by two planes which do not, themselves intersect within the shape; A cone intersected by two planes which do not, themselves intersect within the shape; A semi-hyperboloid intersected by two planes which do not, themselves intersect within the shape; A toroid (doughnut) intersected by two planes which do not… Read More

### Can two planes intersect in infinitely many points?

yes, it may be the two plane intersect at one line or the two planes are coincident.

### Can two planes intersect in a ray or segment?

Two planes that intersect do that at a line. neither a segment that has two endpoints or a ray that has one endpoint.

### If two planes intersect than they intersect at exactaly one point?

Yes. If two planes are not coincident (the same plane) and are not parallel, then they intersect in one straight line.

### Are there always Two planes intersect in a line?

No. Two planes may be parallel and so may not intersect. Also, any line is the intersection of infinitely many planes, not just two.

### Two planes can intersect on exactly one point?

No, 2 planes may only intersect at a line, a plane, or not at all. THREE planes may intersect at a point though...

### Do Two planes always intersect in a line?

Some planes are parallel and don't intersect at all. Those that do intersect (and that are not coincident, i.e. the same plane) intersect in a line.

### Do two planes intersect in infinitely many points?

No, perpendicular planes intercept at only one point. Parallel planes do not intersect at all.

### What would serve as a counter example to the statement Two planes intersect in exactly one line?

Two planes do not intersect at all if the planes are parallel in three-dimensional space.

### Do two distinct planes intersect in a pair of lines?

No. The planes must either coincide (they are the same, and intersect everywhere), be parallel (never intersect), or intersect in exactly one line.

### Can two planes that do not intersect be parallel?

No. By definition, planes can be extended in all directions to infinity. If they are not parallel, they will intersect somewhere.

### Can two planes intersect in a ray or a segment explain why?

In 3d space, two planes will always intersect at a line...unless of course they are the same plane (they coincide). Because planes are infinite in both directions, there is no end point (as in a ray or segment). So, your answer is neither, planes intersect at a line.

### What is formed when two planes interscept?

Two planes intersect (not interscept) at an edge (or a line).

### What are two faces that intersect called?

The place where two faces (planes) intersect is called an edge.

### Do two planes intersects?

two planes intersect in one line, or the planes could be parallel. by the way there is no such thing as skew planes...

### What are lines that intersect at the same point?

yes two lines intersect to form a point two planes intersect to form a line

### Are two planes that do not intersect parallel?

Yes... if they never intersect, then they are in fact, parallel.

### Do planes intersect in exactly two points?

No. Either they do not intersect at all, or they intersect in a straight line or are the same.

### Which shape has edges and no corners?

A section of a cone or spheroid intersected by one or two planes that themselves do not intersect within the solid. A section of a cone or spheroid intersected by one or two planes that themselves do not intersect within the solid. A section of a cone or spheroid intersected by one or two planes that themselves do not intersect within the solid. A section of a cone or spheroid intersected by one or two… Read More

### Are Two planes parallel to a line parallel?

No. Consider two adjacent faces on a cuboid. Both planes are parallel to the edge at which the intersect. But the fact that they do intersect illustrates that they are not parallel.

### What is it called when two planes intersect?

A line is the intersection of two planes. The angle between the planes is called the "dihedral angle".

### What is the two distinct nonparallel planes?

There is no "the" since there are infinitely many non-parallel planes. Two non-parallel planes are planes that intersect in a line.

### What is the intersection of two planes?

If there are two unique, non-parallel planes in space, they will intersect, and their intersection will be a line.

### Two planes always intersect in what geometric figure?

The intersection of two planes is one straight line.

### What geometric figure is formed when to planes intersect?

The geometric figure formed when two planes intersect is called a polygon. * * * * * Wrong! The correct answer is a straight line.

### What is the maximum number of times 2 planes can intersect?

Infiitely many - if the two planes are, in fact, the same. Otherwise at most once.

### Can exactly two planes intersect and the third plane does not intersect the other two?

We don't think so. We reasoned it out like this: -- Two planes either intersect or else they're parallel. -- If two planes intersect, then they're not parallel. -- In order for the third one to avoid intersecting either of the first two, it would have to be parallel to both of them. But if they're not parallel to each other, then that's not possible. If the third plane is parallel to one of the… Read More

### Can two planes in three-dimensional space intersect at one point?

No, they intersect at a line.

### Can Two planes can intersect in exactly one point?

The intersection of two planes is a line. (or a massive explosion...lol)

### Do rays need to be on the same plane to intersect?

Not necessarily. If two rays are on different planes, but the planes intersect, it is possible that the rays would also intersect, but the plane intersection would have to happen where the rays are located.

### Can two different planes intersect a line?

Yes, there are three ways that two different planes can intersect a line: 1) Both planes intersect each other, and their intersection forms the line in the system. This system's solution will be infinite and be the line. 2) Both planes intersect the line at two different points. This system is inconsistent, and there is no solution to this system. However, both planes will still be intersecting the same line, albeit at different locations on… Read More
