Distance b/w two miller planes

  1. Nov 16, 2008 #1
    I am having a hard time visualizing the distance b/w two Miller planes. I found this article that has a brief explanation:

    which derives the common formula for the distance, which can be used for diffraction/crystallography purposes.

    Can someone explain how the distance b/w two miller planes boils down to the distance from the origin to the nearest plane?

    Because all miller planes are equally spaced, and there is always one through the origin.
