Explain why three directional vectors of the plane cannot me mutually perpendicular .

  • Calculus grade 12 -

    If three vector are mutually perpendicular, they form a basis for a three dimensional space. A plane is a two-dimensional space, so it cannot have three mutually perpendicular vectors.
