Subject: [geometry] Compute Normal in 3D

My application uses a 3D coordinate system. I want to compute a normal for
a model such as a ring. I don't see a property or algorithm that provides
computation of a normal. Have I missed something in my searches?


A ring would have to be planar to compute a normal, so a related question is
"If dimensionality is greater than 2, how do I determine that a model is
