In geometry a normal is an object such as a line or vector that is perpendicular to a given object. For example in the two-dimensional case the normal line to a curve at a given point is the line perpendicular to the tangent line to the curve at the point.where s and t range over all real numbers v and w are given linearly independent vectors defining the plane and r 0 is the vector representing the position of an arbitrary (but fixed) point on the plane.The normal vector often simply called the normal to a surface is a vector which is perpendicular to the surface at a given point. When normals are considered on closed surfaces the inward-pointing normal (pointing towards the interior of the surface) and outward-pointing normal are usually distinguished.

In the presence of friction or other forces (applied force tensional forces etc.) the situation is slightly more complicated.The D Plane above left shows the normal to the clubface pointing slightly left of target (target being northwards to the picture) and the clubhead path further left of target.

Let consider the plane (p) of equation and a point M(uvw) We look for the point the projection of M on the plane.Normal of the plane is the vector (abc) so line by M(uvw) of equations is the line perpendicular on the plane. so we have for a pointThis is a comment. If someone would be so kind as to move it into the comments for Stephen Canons answer that would be great. This I hope clarifies what the heck he meant by The three components of the solution vector are the coefficients to the least-square fit plane abc.Points lines and planes In what follows are various notes and algorithms dealing with points lines and planes.
