"two planes that intersect (a solid angle)"... Sure, two intersecting planes define an angle, but that's a plane angle. Three intersecting planes define a solid angle, unless I'm very much mistaken. I'll change that. \Mike 11:32, 25 July 2005 (UTC).

Actually, two planes do define a solid angle, just because they still subtend a fraction of the sphere. But the three-plane definition is not obviously wrong either. Hogghogg 23:24, 17 October 2005 (UTC)
ps. I think if we said "multiple planes that share a common point" rather than "three planes" it would be closer to correct. Hogghogg 23:46, 17 October 2005 (UTC)
pps. Even better, maybe "solid angle" should be its own entry. Hogghogg 23:46, 17 October 2005 (UTC)

I added an intransitive verb meaning, but now I think it is wrong. I think what I put in is a phrasal verb "angle off". Could someone check and fix this? I am clearly in over my head! Hogghogg 23:24, 17 October 2005 (UTC)
