Calling Sequence

AreOrthogonal(l1, l2)

AreOrthogonal(p1, p2)

AreOrthogonal(l1, p1)

AreOrthogonal(p1, l1)

Parameters

l1, l2

-

Line; Line defined in Student[MultivariateCalculus]

p1, p2

-

Plane; Plane defined in Student[MultivariateCalculus]

Description

• 

The AreOrthogonal command determines if two lines or two planes are orthogonal or not, or if a line and a plane are orthogonal.

• 

The Line can be either in 2D or 3D.
