Distance Between Two Non Parallel Lines Line 1 : x = 2 + u, y = 1 + 6u, z = 2u Line 2 : 2 + 4v, y = 5 + 13v, z = -1 + 6v ne u ne v As in all “shortest d stance” problems, the shortest l ne connecting and is perpendicular to both. Start by separating P and Q from the directional vectors that they lie on. Where points P and Q are and respectively and vectors and are and respectively. d pro d u v d Vector is easy to calculate.
