### Introduction

The normal vector, often simply called the "normal", to a surface is a vector perpendicular to it. Often, the normal unit vector is desired, which is sometimes known as the "unit normal".

The normal vector at point (x_{0}, y_{0}) on a **surface** z = f(x ,y) is given by

where and are partial derivatives.

A normal vector to a **plane** is specified by

is given by

where denotes the gradient.
