**SOLID ANGLES**. Definitions . 1. A straight line is perpendicular to a plane , when it is perpendicular to all the straight lines which pass through its foot in the plane . Conversely , the plane is perpendicular to the line . Page 138

F The proposition requires demonstration only when the plane angle , which is compared to the sum of the other two , is greater than either of them . Therefore suppose the
