      Let $\mathcal{M}$ and ${\mathcal{N}}$ be nonzero subspaces of a Hilbert space $\mathcal{H},$ and $P_{\mathcal{M}}$ and $P_{\mathcal{N}}$ denote the orthogonal projections on $\mathcal{M}$ and ${\mathcal{N}},$ respectively. In this note, an exact representation of the angle and the minimum gap of $\mathcal{M}$ and ${\mathcal{N}}$ is obtained. In addition, we study relations between the angle, the minimum gap of two subspaces $\mathcal{M}$ and ${\mathcal{N}},$ and the reduced minimum modulus of $(I-P_{\mathcal{N}})P_{\mathcal{M}}$.
