## What object has perpendicular lines

Properties of Perpendicular Lines

Adjacent sides of **a square and a rectangle** are always perpendicular to each other.

## How are parallel lines used in real life

Parallel line examples in real life are **railroad tracks, the edges of sidewalks, markings on the streets, zebra crossing on the roads, the surface of pineapple and strawberry fruit, staircase and railings**, etc.

## What are some examples of perpendicular lines in real life

**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 the use of perpendicular lines

**If two lines meet or intersect at a point to form a right angle**, they are called perpendicular lines. We can draw a perpendicular line with the help of a set of square. The symbol used for perpendicular lines are ┴. For example, a ┴ b (read as a is perpendicular to b).

## What is a real life example of a line segment

Real-world examples of line segments are **a pencil, a baseball bat, the cord to your cell phone charger, the edge of a table**, etc. Think of a real-life quadrilateral, like a chessboard; it is made of four line segments.

## What is example of parallel lines

The real-life examples of parallel lines include **railroad tracks, the edges of sidewalks, rails of a ladder, never-ending rail tracks, opposite sides of a ruler, opposite edges of a pen, eraser**, etc.

## What is football field called

A **football pitch** (also known as a football field or soccer field) is the playing surface for the game of association football.

## What are perpendicular lines

Perpendicular lines are **lines that intersect at a right (90 degrees) angle**.

## What position are there in football

In order from left to right, they are: the **Left Tackle (LT), Left Guard (LG), Center (C), Right Guard (RG) and Right Tackle (RT)**. It is their job to either pass block for the QB so he has time to throw or run block for the RB or FB.

## Is a football field crowned

**Crowning a football field starts well before the grass is laid**. The underlying soil is sculpted so that the crown runs down the middle of the field, roughly from one goalpost to the other. The area from the crown to each sideline is then graded so that there is a smooth, even slope down each side of the field.

## What is the dimension of a football field

**The total length of a football field is 120 yards.** **The playing field is 100 yards (360 feet) long.** **Each end zone is 10 yards (30 feet) deep**. The field is marked with a yard line every 5 yards, and every 10 yards is marked by a field number.

## What is an example of a perpendicular line

Lines that intersect each other forming a right angle are called perpendicular lines. Example: **the steps of a straight ladder; the opposite sides of a rectangle**. The symbol used to denote two perpendicular lines: ⊥ ⊥ .

## What objects are parallel lines

**Examples of Parallel Lines**

- Railway Tracks. If you are looking for a real-life application of parallel lines, you must closely observe the railway tracks.
- Edges of a Ruler. A ruler is used to draw straight lines and other figures.
- Zebra Crossing.
- Cricket Stumps.
- Electrical Wires.
- Racing Tracks.
- Markings on Road.
- Ruled Paper.

## Why do we need parallel lines and perpendicular lines

Parallel and perpendicular lines are an important part of geometry and they have distinct characteristics that **help to identify them easily**. Two lines are termed as parallel if they lie in the same plane, are the same distance apart, and never meet each other.

## What is a real life example of an acute angle

Real-life Examples of Acute Angles

**If we slice a pizza into 5 or more slices, each slice of pizza will make an acute angle**. Each slice of the pizza makes an acute angle. Another example is the wall clock.

## What is a real life example of skew lines

Skew Lines Example

In real life, we can have different types of roads such as **highways and overpasses in a city**. These roads are considered to be in different planes. Lines drawn on such roads will never intersect and are not parallel to each other thus, forming skew lines.

## What are some examples of lines in real life

What is a real world example of a line? Real-world examples of line segments are **a pencil, a baseball bat, the cord to your cell phone charger, the edge of a table**, etc. Think of a real-life quadrilateral, like a chessboard; it is made of four line segments.

## What are some real life examples of parallel lines and Transversals

**Here are 9 examples of parallels lines cut by transversals:**

- Railway with sleepers. Railway tracks are usually constructed with horizontal supports underneath the rails called sleepers.
- Car Windscreen wiper.
- Staircase with railing.
- Tie stripes patterns.
- Road intersections.
- Pineapple skin.
- Tennis ball nets.
- Railway crossing.
