**"Planar"**A graph is planar if it can be drawn on a plane so that the edges intersect only at the vertices. (For example, of the five first complete graphs all but the fifth, K, is planar.)

Attribute of a graph. A graph is called planar, if it can be drawn in the plane such that there are no edge crossings.

A planar graph is a graph that you can draw on a flat surface, or plane, without any of the edges crossing. Graphs that cannot be drawn on the plane without crossed edges are called non-planar graphs. Any graph that has either of the following graphs as subgraphs are non-planar

adj - Wide in two dimensions, thin in every other dimension. Examples of planar objects are circles, squares, sheets of paper, cd's, the surface of water, etc. See the chart under tetraspace.
