# Examples of perpendicular line segments

## What are two perpendicular line segments?

**Two distinct lines intersecting each other at 90°, or a right angle**, are called perpendicular lines. Here, AB is perpendicular to XY because AB and XY intersect each other at 90°. The two lines are parallel and do not intersect each other.

## What are some examples of perpendicular shapes?

## What are the three examples of perpendicular lines?

**In real life, the following are examples of perpendicular lines:**

- Football field.
- Railway track crossing.
- First aid kit.
- Construction of a house in which floor and the wall are perpendiculars.
- Television.
- Designs in windows.

## What is a real life example of perpendicular lines?

They are perpendicular because they cross at right angles to each other.

**Railroad tracks**are a great example of natural perpendicular lines. Another good example of perpendicular lines in real life is a football field. All four corners of a football field are perpendicular to each other.## What shape has perpendicular line segments?

As listed before, the most common shapes with perpendicular sides are

**squares and rectangles**. Another common shape with perpendicular sides is the right triangle. It is called a right triangle because it has a right angle for one of its three angles, this is where the perpendicular sides meet.## How do you know if two lines segments are perpendicular?

Explanation:

**If two lines intersect each other and make an angle of 90 degrees**, then two line segments are perpendicular to each other.## What are the perpendicular objects?

In elementary geometry, two geometric objects are perpendicular

**if they intersect at a right angle (90 degrees or π/2 radians)**. The condition of perpendicularity may be represented graphically using the perpendicular symbol, ⟂.## What real life examples represent parallel and perpendicular lines?

1 Answer. Probably, the best examples are

**buildings**. They are all filled with parallel lines (floors) and perpendiculars (walls).## What is a perpendicular line look like?

## What are the perpendicular objects?

In elementary geometry, two geometric objects are perpendicular

**if they intersect at a right angle (90 degrees or π/2 radians)**. The condition of perpendicularity may be represented graphically using the perpendicular symbol, ⟂.## Which shape has 4 pairs of perpendicular lines?

Squares

**Squares**(like the one below) contain 4 pairs of perpendicular lines.

## What shape has perpendicular diagonals?

‘If the diagonals of a parallelogram are perpendicular, then it is

**a rhombus**.## Which symbol means perpendicular?

Two lines that intersect and form right angles are called perpendicular lines. The symbol ⊥ is used to denote perpendicular lines.

## Does a diamond have perpendicular lines?

A parallelogram in which all the edges are of equal length is called a rhombus, or a diamond. In addition to the general properties of parallelograms, in a rhombus, the diagonals bisect the angles, and

**the diagonals are perpendicular to each other**.## Which shape does not have perpendicular line segments?

## How many perpendicular lines does a rectangle have?

A rectangle has two pairs of parallel lines and

**two pairs**of perpendicular lines.## Does a rhombus have perpendicular lines?

**The two diagonals of a rhombus are perpendicular**; that is, a rhombus is an orthodiagonal quadrilateral. Its diagonals bisect opposite angles.

## Is a square a diamond?

A square is a quadrilateral. Furthermore, a square has all of its sides of equal length, and since all of its angles have the same measure, opposite angles have the same measure, and opposite sides are parallel. Thus,

**a square satisfies the definition of a diamond**, and since Mike’s kite is a square, it is a diamond.## Is a kite a rhombus?

Kites are a special type of quadrilateral with two distinct pairs of consecutive sides the same length. Because rhombi and squares also have sides the same length, they are also kites, but the reverse is not true.

**Every kite is not a rhombus**, because all sides of a kite are not equal.## Is a rectangle perpendicular?

**Rectangles are parallelograms with perpendicular sides**

Rectangles have four straight sides. Each pair of opposite sides is parallel, and adjacent sides are perpendicular. This means that every angle in a rectangle is a right (90∘) angle.

## Is a trapezoid perpendicular?

**“Right trapezoids” have one side which is perpendicular to the bases**, creating two right angles. Isosceles trapezoids have two sides which are equal sized and have the same angles between themselves and the bases.
