## What is the angle between normals to two planes?

The angle between two planes is equal to the acute angle determined by the normal vectors of the planes. Two planes are perpendicular if their normal vectors are orthogonal.

## How do you find the angle of an XYZ plane?

You can think of it this way : instead of finding the angle between vector (1,1,1) and the x-y plane , you can find the angle between vector (1,1,1) and any vector perpendicular to the x-y plane , and then subtract the result from which I think the best one would be (0,0,1) (the Z-axis unit vector).

## What is the angle between two lines?

The angle between two lines is the angle between direction vectors of the lines. If and are direction vectors of lines, then the cosine of the angle between the lines is given by the following formula: . If two lines are perpendicular to each other then their direction vectors are also perpendicular.
