Homework Help: D-spacing physics help

  1. Jan 26, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    By book says prove that the distance between two adjacent parallel planes of a lattice is d(hkl) = 2pi/|G| where g = gb_1 +k b_2 + l b_3 where the b_i are the primitive vectors of the reciprocal lattice.

    Could someone clarify exactly what they mean by "adjacent"?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    "Next to" or 'alongside' or 'face-to-face'.
