I am trying to get a hang of miller indices and doing some practice.

So here it is : What would be the miller indices of the plane containing the x-axis and equally inclined to y and z axes?

(I have uploaded the diagram and highlighted the plane to clarify)

Attempts :

I first try to find the intercepts.

The intercepts on the y and z axes are both, 0.

So does that make the corresponding miller indices

Also, what would be the intercept on the x axis, since the plane

If there any gaps in my understanding or flaws in the way i am looking at it, please do correct me.

thank you :)

*k*and*l*infinity? If yes, isn't the whole point of miller indices to avoid infinities in case of planes parallel to any of the crystal axes?Also, what would be the intercept on the x axis, since the plane

*contains*the x axis?If there any gaps in my understanding or flaws in the way i am looking at it, please do correct me.

thank you :)
