Parallel lattice planes

This animation explains the relationships between parallel planes and their indices. Click "Start" to begin and use the buttons at the bottom right to navigate through the pages.

Lattice planes can be represented by showing the trace of the planes on the faces of one or more unit cells. The diagram shows the trace of the (213) planes on a cubic unit cell.
