quations of Planes Equations of Planes Let P x , y , z be an arbitrary point in the plane. Then the vector r r 0 P 0 P is orthogonal to n ,so n  r r 0 0 . his alled ector quation f e lane This is called a vector equation of the plane. It can be written as a , b , c    x x 0 , y y 0 , z z 0 0 r s or as a x x 0 b y y 0 c z z 0 0 . The latter equation is called a scalar equation for the plane. In general, any linear equation ax by cz d 0 describes a plane.
