Skew Lines

Concept

Skew Lines

Skew lines are lines in three dimensions that don't intersect and are non-parallel. The blue lines in the rectangular cuboid below are all skew lines.

In two dimensions, skew lines cannot exist because two non-parallel lines that lie in the same plane must intersect.
