Pronunciation: /koʊˈpleɪ.nər/ Explain
Click on any part of the graph that does not contain an object and drag it to rotate the view. The green shaded part represents plane a.|
Note that point C and line f always show in the plane. They are coplanar with plane a. Line g and point F do not always show in the plane. They are not coplanar with plane a.
