= 3, -2, 8 Direction cosine of AB Question 2.
Find direction cosines of the line which makes an angle 90°, 135° and 45° with X, Y and Z axis respectively? (NCERT)
Solution:
Given α = 90°, β = 135°, λ = 45°
cos α = cos 90° = 0
cos β = cos 135° = cos (180° – 45°)
= – cos 45° = – $$\frac { 1 }{ \sqrt { 2 } }$$
cos λ = cos 45° = $$\frac { 1 }{ \sqrt { 2 } }$$
Direction cosines are cos α, cos β, cos λ
i.e; 0, – $$\frac { 1 }{ \sqrt { 2 } }$$, $$\frac { 1 }{ \sqrt { 2 } }$$

Question 3.
A line OP, makes the angle 120° and 60° with X – axis and Y – axis respectively find the angle made by line with Z – axis?
Solution:
Given α = 120°, β = 60°.
Let the angle made by the line with Z – axis be γ then
cos2α + cos2β + cos2 γ = 1
⇒ cos2 120° + cos2 60° + cos2 γ = 1 Hence, the required angle is 45° or 135°.

Question 4.
Show that the points (2, 3, 4), (-1, -2, 1) and (5, 8, 7) are collinear? (NCERT)
Solution:
Given Points are A (2, 3, 4), B (-1,-2, 1), C (5, 8, 7)

= – 1 – 2, – 2 – 3, 1 – 4
= – 3, – 5, – 3 = – (3, 5, 3)
Direction ratio of BC x2 – x1, y2 – y1, z2 – z1
= 5 + 1, 8 + 2, 7 – 1
= 6, 10, 6 = 2 (3, 5, 3)
It is clear that direction ratio of AB and BC are proportional, hence AB is parallel to BC but point B is common to both AB and BC therefore A, B, C are collinear. Proved.

Question 5.
If direction cosine of a line are cos α, cos β and cos γ then prove that:
cos 2α + cos 2β + cos 2γ = – 1.
Solution:
L.H.S. = cos2α + cos2β + cos2γ
= 2cos2α – 1 + 2cos2β – 1 + 2cos2γ – 1
= 2 (cos2α + cos2β + cos2γ) – 3
= 2 × 1 – 3, [∵ cos2α + 2β + cos2γ – 1]
= -1
= R.H.S. Proved. Question 6.
Prove that the line passing through the points (1, -1, 2) and (3, 4, -2) are perpendicular to the lines passing through the points (0, 3, 2) and (3, 5, 6). (NCERT)
Solution:
Direction ratio’s of the line joining points (1, -1, 2) and (3, 4, -2)
= 3 – 1, 4 + 1, – 2 – 2
= 2, 5, – 4 = a1, b1, c1 (let)

= 3 – 0, 5 – 3, 6 – 2
= 3,2,4
= a2, b2, c2 (let)
Lines will be perpendicular if
a1a2 + b1b2 + c1c2 = 0
⇒ 2.3 + 5.2 – 4.4 = 0
⇒ 16 – 16 = 0
⇒ 0 = 0. Proved.

Prove that the line joining the points A (1, 2, 3) and B (2, 3, 5) are parallel to then line joining the points C (-1, 2, -3) and D ( 1, 4, 1)?
Solution:
Direction ratio of line AB
= 2 – 1, 3 – 2, 5 – 3
= 1, 1, 2
= a1, b1, C1
Direction ratio of line CD
= 1 + 1, 4 – 2, 1 + 3
= 2, 2, 4
= a2, b2, c2
Where $$\frac { a_{ 1 } }{ a_{ 2 } }$$ = $$\frac { b_{ 1 } }{ b_{ 2 } }$$ = $$\frac { c_{ 1 } }{ c_{ 2 } }$$
= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ = $$\frac{1}{2}$$ = $$\frac{2}{4}$$ or $$\frac{1}{2}$$

Solution:
Equation of the lines are
$$\frac{x}{2}$$ = $$\frac{y}{2}$$ = $$\frac{z}{1}$$
and $$\frac{x – 5}{4}$$ = $$\frac{y – 2}{1}$$ = $$\frac{z – 3}{8}$$

a2 = 4, b2 = 1, c2 = 8
Let the angle between them = θ Question 9.
Prove that lines
$$\frac{x – 5}{7}$$ = $$\frac{y + 2}{- 5}$$ = $$\frac{z}{1}$$ and $$\frac{x}{1}$$ = $$\frac{y}{2}$$ = $$\frac{z}{3}$$ are perpendicular? (NCERT)
Solution:
$$\frac{x – 5}{7}$$ = $$\frac{y + 2}{- 5}$$ = $$\frac{z}{1}$$
and $$\frac{x}{1}$$ = $$\frac{y}{2}$$ = $$\frac{z}{3}$$
Where a1 = 7, b1 = -5, c1 = 1
a2 = 1, b2 = 2, c2 = 3
a1a2 + b1b2 + c1c2 = 7(1) + (- 5)(2) + 1 × 3
= 10 -10 = 0
Hence, the lines are perpendicular. Proved. Question 10.

a = 3k, b = 5k, c = 8k
Putting the value of a, b, c in eqn. (2) we get
$$\frac { x+2 }{ 3k }$$ = $$\frac { y-4 }{ 5k }$$ = $$\frac { z+5 }{ 8k }$$
$$\frac { x+2 }{ 3 }$$ = $$\frac { y-4 }{ 5 }$$ = $$\frac { z+5 }{ 8 }$$.

∴ x + 2y + 5z = 0. Question 30.
Find the equation of the plane parallel to X – axis and passes through the points (2, 3, -4) and (1, -1, 3)?
Solution:
Let the equation of the plane parallel to X – axis is
by + cz + d= 0 ………………………. (1)
It passes through the points (2, 3, – 4) and (1, -1, 3), then
3b – 4c + d = 0 ……………………….. (2)
and – b + 3c + d = o …………………….. (3)
Solving eqns. (2) and (3), we get
$$\frac { b }{ -4-3 }$$ = $$\frac { c }{ -1-3 }$$ = $$\frac { d }{ 9-4 }$$
⇒ $$\frac{b}{7}$$ = $$\frac{c}{4}$$ = $$\frac{d}{-5}$$ = k (say)
∴ b = 7k, c = 4k, d = -5k
Put the values of b, c and d in eqn. (1), we get
7ky + 4kz – 5k = 0
⇒ 7y + 4z – 5 = 0
This is the required equation of the plane.

(A) Find the equation of the plane passes through the intersecting line of the planes x + y + z – 6 = 0 and 2x + 3y + 4z + 5 = 0 and also through the point (1, 1, 1)?
Solution:
The given planes are
x + y + z – 6 = 0 …………………. (1)
and 2x + 3y + 4z + 5 = 0 ………………….. (2)
The equation of the plane passes through the intersecting line of the planes (1) and (2), is
(x – y + z – 6) + λ (2x + 3y + 4z + 5) = 0 ………………….. (3)
Because plane (3) passes through the point (1, 1, 1), then
(1 + 1 + 1 – 6) + (2 + 3 + 4 + 5) = 0
⇒ – 3 + λ (14) = 0
⇒ λ = $$\frac{3}{14}$$
Putting the value of λ in eqn.(3),
(x + y + z – 6) + $$\frac{3}{14}$$ (2x + 3y + 4z + 5) = 0
⇒ 20x + 23y + 26z – 69 = 0.

Passes through line $$\frac { x-3 }{ 2 }$$ = $$\frac { y+2 }{ 3 }$$ = $$\frac { z-4 }{ -1 }$$
∴ A(x – 3) + B(y + 2) + C(z – 4) = 0 ………………………… (1)
Plane passes through point (-6, 3, 2)
∴ A(-6 – 3) + B(3 + 2) + C(2 – 4) = 0
⇒ -9A + 5B – 2C = 0
⇒ 9A – 5B + 2C = 0 …………………………… (2)
Direction ratio of plane →A, B, C
2A + 3B – C = 0
Solving eqns. (2) and (3)
9A – 5B + 2C = 0
2A + 3B – C = 0
$$\frac { A }{ 5-6 }$$ = $$\frac { B }{ 4+9 }$$ = $$\frac { C }{ 27+10 }$$
⇒ $$\frac { A }{ -1 }$$ = $$\frac { B }{ 13 }$$ = $$\frac { C }{ 37 }$$
Putting in eqn. (1)
-1(x – 3) + 13(y + 2) + 37(z – 4) = 0
⇒ -x + 3 + 13y + 26 + 37z – 148 = 0
⇒ -x + 13y + 37z – 119 = 0
⇒ x – 13y – 37z + 119 = 0. Question 4.

We know that the shortest distance between 2 lines $$\frac { x-x_{ 1 } }{ a_{ 1 } }$$ = $$\frac { y-y_{ 1 } }{ b_{ 1 } }$$ = $$\frac { z-z_{ 1 } }{ c_{ 1 } }$$ and $$\frac { x-x_{ 2 } }{ a_{ 2 } }$$ = $$\frac { y-y_{ 2 } }{ b_{ 2 } }$$ = $$\frac { z-z_{ 2 } }{ c_{ 2 } }$$ is Question 5.

Solution:
Let $$\frac { x-1 }{ 2 }$$ = $$\frac { y-2 }{ 3 }$$ = $$\frac { z-3 }{ 4 }$$ = r
∴ x = 2r + 1, y = 3r + 2, z = 4r + 3
Suppose the above point is intersection point then it will satisfy line Put in eqn.(1), we get
x = 2(-1) + 1, y = 3(-1) + 2, z = 4(-1) + 3

and $$\frac { x-4 }{ 1 }$$ = $$\frac { y-5 }{ 3 }$$ = $$\frac { z+6 }{ -4 }$$ ……………………… (2)
x1 = 3, y1 = -4, z1 = 5, l1 = 1, m1 = -3, n1 = 3
x2 = 4, y2 = 5, z2 = -6, l2 = 1, m2 = 3, n2 = -4
If lines (1) and (2) are intersect, then ⇒ 1(12 – 9) -1(-36 + 33) + 1(27 – 33) = 0
⇒ 3 + 3 – 6 = 0
⇒ 0 = 0
Hence the lines (1) and (2) are intersect
Again let $$\frac { x-3 }{ 1 }$$ = $$\frac { y+4 }{ 3 }$$ = $$\frac { z-5 }{ 3 }$$ = r
∴ x = r + 3, y = -3r – 4, z = 3r + 5 ……………………………… (3)
Suppose above point is point of intersection hence it will satisfy eqn. (2) Putting r = -1 in eqn. (3),
We get x = -1 + 3, y = -3(-1) – 4, z = 3(-1) + 5
x = 2, y = -1, z = 2
