## Karnataka 2nd PUC Maths Question Bank Chapter 11 Three Dimensional Geometry Miscellaneous Exercise

Question 1.
Show that the line joining the origin to the point (2, 1, 1) is perpendicular to the line determined by the points (3, 5, – 1), (4, 3, – 1).
Dr’s of the line joining the origin to the point (2,1,1 )is (2 – 0, 1 – 0, 1 – 0)
∴ (2, 1,1)
Dr’s of the line joining (3, 5,-1) and (+4, 3,-1)
is (4 – 3 ,3 – 5,1 – 1)  (1, -2, 0)
1 x 2 – 2 x 1 + 1 x 0 = 0
hence a1b1 + a2b2 + a3b3 = 0
∴ lines are perpendicular.

Question 2.
If l1, m1 , n1 and l2, m2, n2 are the direction cosines of two mutually perpendicular lines, show that the direction cosines of the line perpendicular to both of these are
m1n2 – m2n1, n1l2 – n2lp l1m2 – l2m1
The given lines are respectively parallel to
$$\bar{a}_{1}=1, \bar{i}+m_{1} \bar{j}+n_{1} \bar{k} \text { and } \bar{a}_{2}=1_{2} \bar{i}+m_{2} \bar{j}+n_{2} \bar{k} \bar{a}_{1} \times \bar{a}_{2}$$ is a vector which is normal to both $$\bar { a } _{ 1 }\quad and\quad \bar { a } _{ 2 }$$ and is of magnitude unity. Question 3.
Find the angle between the lines whose direction ratios are
(a, b, c) and (b – c, c – a, a – b.)  Question 4.
Find the equation of a line parallel to x-axis and passing through the origin.
Dc’s of x-axis (1, 0, 0)
Dc’s of any line parallel to x-axis is also (1,0,0).
The required equation passes through (0,0,0) and having Dc’s (1, 0,0) is
$$\frac{x-0}{1}=\frac{y-0}{0}=\frac{z-0}{0}$$

Question 5.
If the coordinates of the points A, B, C, D be (1, 2, 3), (4, 5, 7), (- 4, 3, – 6) and (2, 9, 2) respectively, then find the angle between the lines AB and CD.
Dr’s of AB = (3, 3, 4), Direction CD = (6,6, 8)
$$\frac{3}{6}=\frac{3}{6}=\frac{4}{8}$$ Dr’s are proportional. Hence they are parallel
∴ Angle between them = 0°

Question 6.
If the lines
$$\frac { x-1 }{ -3 } =\frac { y-2 }{ 2k } =\frac { z-3 }{ 2 } \quad and\quad \frac { x-1 }{ 3k } =\frac { y-1 }{ 1 } =\frac { z-6 }{ -5 }$$
are perpendicular, find the value of k.
Here Dr’s of the lines are (-3, 2k, 2) and (3k, 1,-5) .
since the lines are perpendicular
-3 x 3k + 2k x 1 x 2 x -5 = 0
$$-9 k+2 k-10=0 \Rightarrow-7 k=10 \Rightarrow k=\frac{-10}{7}$$ Question 7.
Find the vector equation of the line passing through (1, 2, 3) and perpendicular to the plane $$\overrightarrow{\mathbf{r}} \cdot(\hat{\mathbf{i}}+2 \hat{\mathbf{j}}-5 \hat{\mathbf{k}})+9=\mathbf{0}$$
Dr’s of the normal to the plane is (1,2,-5)
Since the required line is ‘⊥’ to the plane, these Dr’s are equal.
∴ Dr’s of the line (1,2, -5) and passing through (2,3)
∴ $$\text { Line is } \frac{x-1}{1}=\frac{y-2}{2}=\frac{z-3}{-5}$$
hence vector equation of the line is
$$\overline { { r } } =\overline { { a } } +\lambda \overline { { b } } \quad \overrightarrow { { r } } =(\overrightarrow { { i } } +2\overrightarrow { { j } } +3\overrightarrow { { k } } )+\lambda (\overrightarrow { { i } } +2\overrightarrow { { j } } -5\overrightarrow { { k } } )$$

Question 8.
Find the equation plane passing (a,b,c) and parallel to the plane
$$\overrightarrow{\mathbf{r}}\cdot(\hat{\mathbf{i}}+\hat{\mathbf{j}}+\hat{\mathbf{k}})=2$$
The required plane is parallel to
$$\overrightarrow{\mathbf{r}}\cdot(\hat{\mathbf{i}}+\hat{\mathbf{j}}+\hat{\mathbf{k}})$$ hence Dr’s of the normal to the plane is (1, 1, 1) and through the points
(a, b, c)
∴ its equation is $$(\overline{\mathbf{r}}-\overline{\mathbf{a}}) \cdot \hat{\mathbf{n}}=0$$
(x – a) x 1 + (y – b) x 1 x (z – c).1 = 0
∴ x + y + z = a + b + c.

Question 9.
Find the shortest distance between lines
$$\begin{matrix} & \overrightarrow { { r } } =6\hat { { i } } +2\hat { { j } } +2\hat { { k } } +\lambda (\hat { { i } } -2\hat { { j } } +2\hat { { k } } ){ and } \\ & \overrightarrow { { r } } =-4\hat { { i } } -\hat { { k } } +\mu (3\hat { { i } } -2\hat { { j } } -2\hat { { k } } ) \end{matrix}$$  Question 10.

Equation of plane through (3, -4, -5) and
$$(2,-3,1) \text { is } \frac{x-3}{-1}=\frac{y+4}{1}=\frac{z+5}{6}$$
any point on the line (3 – λ, -4 + λ, -5 + 6λ) but this point lies on the plane 2x + y + z = 7 6 – 2λ,-4 + λ -5 + 6λ = 7
+5λ = +10 ⇒ λ = +2
∴ Required point is (1, -2,7).

Question 13.
Find the equation of the plane passing through the point (- 1, 3, 2) and perpen­dicular to each of the planes x + 2y + 3z = 5 and 3x + 3y + z = 0.
Let the equation of plane through (-1,3, 2) be
A (x + 1) + B (y – 3) + C (z-2) = 0 → (1)
But this plane is ‘⊥’ to both given planes
A + 2B + 3C = 5 and → (2)
3A + 3B + C = 0 → (3)
solving (1), (2) and (3) ⇒ (x +1)(-7) – (y – 3)(-8) + (z – 2)(-3) = 0
7x – 8y + 3z + 25 = 0
OR

(x + 2y + 3z – 4) + λ (2x + y – z + 5) = 0
x(1+2λ)+ λ (2+λ) +z (3 – λ) – 4 + 5 λ =0
the given plane is ‘⊥’ to the plane Question 18.
