determine whether a Line, plane, or point object is in two- or three-dimensional space
Line, Plane, list ; Line or Plane defined by Student[MultivariateCalculus] or a point
The GetDimension command finds out if a line, plane or point object is in two-dimensional or three-dimensional space.
A point, by definition, has dimension zero; a line has dimension one; and a plane has dimension two. But the space in which these objects live has a different dimension (two or three, for the Student[MultivariateCalculus] package). It is this dimension that the GetDimension command returns.
l1 ≔ Line⁡0,4,2,1,1,1:
p1 ≔ Plane⁡0,4,2,5,9,7,−1,6,3:
l2 ≔ Line⁡0,2,0,1:
The Student[MultivariateCalculus][GetDimension] command was introduced in Maple 17.
