The equation of the straight line which makes an angle of 135° with the positive direction of the a--axis and cuts off an intercept equal to 5 on y-axis is given by

Detailed Solution for Test: Dimensional Geometry - 3 - Question 4

Note that the equation of a straight line which makes an angle 0 with the positive direction of the x-axis and cuts an intercept equal to c on y-axis, is given by

y= mx + c,
where m = tan θ.
In this problem,
c = 5
and
θ= 135° ⇒ w = tan 135° = -1 Required equation is given by
y = -x+5 
or y + x = 5

and so on.

Test: Dimensional Geometry - 3 - Question 6

Let P be the perpendicular from the origin on a straight line and a be the angle which this perpendicular makes with the positive direction of the axis of x, then the straight line cuts off an intercom equal to ... on the y-axis.

Detailed Solution for Test: Dimensional Geometry - 3 - Question 6

Figure shows the straight line such that
(i) P is the perpendicular from the origin on the straight line.

(ii) Perpendicular makes an angle α with positive direction of the axis of x.
Its equation is given by x cos α + y sin α = p ...(i)
The required intercept on y-axis is obtained by substituting x = 0 in equation (i).
⇒ y sin a = p
=> y = p cosecor.

Test: Dimensional Geometry - 3 - Question 7

Which of the following statements is correct?

Detailed Solution for Test: Dimensional Geometry - 3 - Question 7

The general equation of a straight line is given by
Ax + By = C,
where A. B and C are constants.
Remark: Note that the equation

does represents a straight line. But it is not correct to say that only the equations of this type will represent a straight line. This is the intercept form of a straight line.

Detailed Solution for Test: Dimensional Geometry - 3 - Question 9

Proof: The equation of a st raight line having equal intercepts on the coordinate axis is given by

where a is the intercept on x or y-axis.
Since the. straight line (i) passes through the point (2, 3), therefore the coordinates of this point will satisfy equation (i).

 The length of ihe. perpendicular from the origin on the straight line 5x+12y=0 is given by

Detailed Solution for Test: Dimensional Geometry - 3 - Question 10

If p is the length of the perpendicular from the origin on the line
5x + 12y - 26 = 0
then

Test: Dimensional Geometry - 3 - Question 12

If the projection of a line segment on the X- axis , Y-axis and Z axis be 12, 4 and 3 respectiveIv, then it’s length will be

Detailed Solution for Test: Dimensional Geometry - 3 - Question 12

let the given line joins the points P(x1 ,y1, z1 ) and Q(x2 ,y2, z2)
Then since the d.c.'s of x-axis are [1, 0,0]. therefore the projection of PQ on x-axis = 1 (x2 - x1 )
=> x2 - x1 =12
Similarly y2 - y1 = 4
and z2 - z1= 3
Required length r of the line PQ is given by

The three concurrent lines, whose direction cosines are given by l1, m1, n1 : l2, m2, n2, and l3, m3, n3 are coplanar if

Detailed Solution for Test: Dimensional Geometry - 3 - Question 16

Proof- Let (l,m,n) be the direction cosines of a line which is normal to the plane containing the lines with d.c.'s (l1,m1,n1) and (l2,m2,n2) since a plane can always be drawn containing any two concurrent lines] 
=> l1l + m1m + n1n = 0 ...(i)
and l2l + m2m + n2n = 0 ...(ii)

If the line with d.c.'s (l3,m3,n3) also lies on this plane, then
l3l + m3m + n3n = 0 ...(iii)
For a non-trivial solution of equations (i), (ii) and (iii) for l,m,n we get
