A simple formula from which a geometrical picture of neutrino oscillations with two flavors may be constructed is derived from the equation of motion for the neutrinos. Applications of the picture to the nonadiabatic as well as adiabatic Mikheyev-Smirnov-Wolfenstein effects in the solar-neutrino problem are given. A generalization of the picture to the three-generation case is also briefly discussed.
