Skew Lines FAQs:


Q: Are skew lines two lines that do not intersect and are not parallel?

A: Yes.

Q: Are skew lines to apply the formula for the volume of a tetrahedron in terms of its four vertices?

A: Yes.

Q: Are skew lines the pair of lines through opposite edges of a regular tetrahedron?

A: Yes.

Q: Are skew lines the "usual" case?

A: Yes, and parallel or intersecting lines are special cases.

Q: Are skew lines a set of lines in which all pairs are skew?

A: Yes.

Q: Are skew lines defined by two points that it passes through?

A: Yes, and then these four points must not be coplanar, so they must be the vertices of a tetrahedron of nonzero volume.
