Cartesian Equation of a Plane

Main Concept

The Cartesian or scalar equation of a plane  in ℝ3 has the form:


Ax +By + Cz + D = 0,


where A, B, C, D are real-valued parameters. The vector A,B,C is normal (perpendicular) to the plane.


Change the coefficients of the Cartesian equation of a plane in 3 and see how the plane changes. Select the check box to see the normal vector.
