A tetrahedron is a three dimensional figure formed by four triangles. A tetrahedron in which all edges are equal, is called a regular tetrahedron.

Using scalar product some relations between edges of tetrahedron can be proved.

The relations are:

1. If two pairs of opposite edges of a tetrahedron are perpendicular, then the opposite edges of the third pair are also perpendicular to each other.
2. In a tetrahedron, the sum of the squares of two opposite edges is the same for each pair.
3. Any two opposite edges in a regular tetrahedron are perpendicular.
