Equation of a plane normal to x-z plane

Subject: Equation of a plane normal to x-z plane

Hi!

I have two points (x1,y1,z1) and (x2,y2,z2). Now I want to find the point normal form of a plane whose normal perpendicular to the x-z plane. How to do it? And similarly a plane whose normal is perpendicular through the y-z plane.

Thanks,
Gaurav

Dear GAURAV,

Do these points appear in your problem again?

> Now I want to find the point normal form of a plane whose normal perpendicular to the x-z plane.

A plane, whose normal is perpendicular to the X-Z-plane? This is the X-Z-plane, isn't it? Therefore the normal is an [0, y, 0] vector and any point [x, 0, z] can be used to define the point normal form.

Does this help?! Jan
