Calling Sequence

Intersects(pl1, pl2)

Parameters

pl1, pl2

-

list, Line, Plane ; point, Line or Plane defined by Student[MultivariateCalculus].

Description

• 

The Intersects command determines if two Line or Plane objects intersect.

• 

The point, line, or plane of intersection can be obtained by GetIntersection.

• 

Two Line objects in 3D can be non-parallel but non-intersecting.  Such two lines are skew.  This property can be detected by AreSkew.

• 

If one object is contained in another object, then they intersect. In particular, if two objects are equal, then they intersect.
