The only difference between perpendicular lines and intersecting lines is that perpendicular lines create a right angle at the point of intersection.

Because both lines and rays are infinite in length and thus have no midpoint.

Intersecting lines can cross at any angle. Perpendicular lines cross or meet at 90 degrees only.

Intersecting lines may or may not be perpendicular. If the angle of intersection between two intersecting lines is 90 degrees, then the two lines are perpendicular. Otherwise, the lines are not perpendicular. For example: A | | | B ----|----- | | Here, the lines A and B are intersecting. The angle between A and B is 90 degrees. Therefore, line A and line B are perpendicular to each other.

Perpendicular lines ARE intersecting lines.

Exactly 90 degrees, that is the definition of perpendicular.

Right angles are created when perpendicular lines intersect each other.
