The equation of a plane with normal vector pvectoring through the point is given by (4) For a plane curve the unit normal vector can be defined by (5) where is the unit tangent vector and is the polar angle. Given a unit tangent vector (6) with the normal is (7) 15.11.2011 Take one point as the base point compute the two difference vectors to the other two points (those two span the plane) and take their cross product to get a normal vector.gives the signed distance from the plane to an arbitrary point Q. If d 0 then the point Q lies in the plane. If d 0 we say that the point Q lies on the positive side of the plane since Q would be on the side in which the normal vector points.

In practice its usually easier to work out bf n in a given example rather than try to set up some general equation for the plane.In geometry a normal is an object such as a line or vector that is perpendicular to a given object. For example in two dimensions the normal line to a curve at a given point is the line perpendicular to the tangent line to the curve at the point.23.04.2011 Best Answer To get the normal vector to the plane all you must do is grab the coefficients of each variable when in standard form (i.e. when written in expanded form as you have with all variable terms opposite the non-variable term) and place them as the components of the vector.Status Offen

Why is the perpendicular vector on a plane always the vector of coefficients of the variables in the plane equation e.g. for the plane 2x-y3z8 the perpendicular vector is (2-13). Thanks.
