Equation of the triangle

  1. May 7, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    The triangle obtained by tracing out the path from (6, 0, 0) to (6, 0, 2) to (6, 5, 2) to (6, 0, 0)

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Should I use the following equation Ax + By + Cz = d and find the normal first?

    What is the question? You title this "equation of the triangle" but a triangle doesn't have an "equation". Do you mean to integrate some function over the region bounded by the triangle?

    yes that's what I actually meant
