# For Exercises 39 to 44, make drawings as needed.Two planes are tangent to a sphere at the endpoints of a diameter. How are the planes related?

To determine

To find:

The relation of two planes tangential to a sphere, at the endpoints of a diameter.

Explanation

Approach:

A sphere is a three dimensional solid figure, which is made up of all points in the space, which lie at a common distance, called the radius, from a fixed point called the center of the sphere. A sphere is a 3 dimensional version of a circle. Similar to a circle, a sphere may have tangent and secant lines. In addition, the sphere may also have tangent planes.

1) A line which intersects a sphere in two distinct points is called the secant of a sphere.

2) A line which intersects a sphere in only one point is called the tangent to a sphere.
