Taking

This point lies in plane (ii), if it satisfies the equation of the plane.

This equation will be true for every value of r^i.e. every point of line (1) will lie in the plane), if

Thus conditions in (A) are the required conditions.

Test: Dimensional Geometry - 9 - Question 13

The equation of the plane passing through the point (x1, y1, z1) and through the line

Detailed Solution for Test: Dimensional Geometry - 9 - Question 13

To find the equation of a plane passing through a given point (x1, y1, z1) and a given line
The equation of the plane through the line (i) is

Since the plane (ii) passes through the point (x1, y1, z1), therefore

Eliminating a, b, c from equations (ii), (iii) and (iv), we get the required equation of the plane as

Test: Dimensional Geometry - 9 - Question 14

The equation of the plane containing the lines   is not given by

Detailed Solution for Test: Dimensional Geometry - 9 - Question 14

To find the equation of the plane containing the lines

The plant: containing (i) is
A ( x - a) + B ( y - b) + C ( z - c) = 0 ...(iii)
where Aa' + Bb‘ + Cc' 3 =0 ...(iv)
Further, since the plane (iii) also contains line (ii),  therefore , the normal to plane (iii) is perpendicular to line (ii).
∴ Aa + Bb + Cc = 0 ...(v)
Eliminating A, B, C from equations (iii), (iv) and (v), we get the required equation of plane

This is statement (b). The statements (a) and (c) can be deduced from this by simple propert ies of determinants. Thus (a), (b|, (c) are correct.

How many arbitrary constants occur in the equation of a straight line in general?

Detailed Solution for Test: Dimensional Geometry - 9 - Question 15

The number of arbitrary constants in the equation of a straight line in general.
We know that a given line can be regarded as the intersection of any two planes. In particular, we may take- the two planes perpendicular to two of the coordinate planes, say yz and zx planes. These planes are

Equations (i) and (ii) thus represent the given line. Note that equations (i) and (ii) contain four arbitrary constant a, b, c, d

What is the magnitude of the line of shortest distance between the lines

Detailed Solution for Test: Dimensional Geometry - 9 - Question 17

Magnitude and equations of Shortest Distance (S.D)
Here we have to find the magnitude and the equation of shorttest distance between two given lines.

*    It
By definition, the line of shortest distance between (i) and (ii) is perpendicular to both (i) and (ii). Therefore, if [λ,μ,ν] an; the d.c.’s of the line of shortest distance we have

Remark: Two lines given by (i) and (ii) will intersect, i.e. these lines will be coplanar if shortest distance between them is zero. Thus the condition for two lines to be coplanar is

Test: Dimensional Geometry - 9 - Question 18

The equation of the line of shortest distance between the lines  is given by

Detailed Solution for Test: Dimensional Geometry - 9 - Question 18

The given lines are

Let the line of shortest distance meet the line (i) and (ii) in points P and Q respectively. Then the coordinates of P and Q will be

where r1, and r2, are such that the line joining P and Q (line of shortest distance) is perpendicular to both (i) and (ii).
The direction ratios of the line PQ are

The coordinates of points P and Q ,so that PQ becomes the line of shortest distance are (3, 8, 3) and (-3, -7, 6) respectively.
The direction ratios of PQ are
6,15,-3 or 2,5,-1

Test: Dimensional Geometry - 9 - Question 19

Which is a wrong statement? The three planes
a1x + b1y + c1z + d1 = 0
a2x + b2y + c2z + d2 = 0
a3x + b3y + c3z + d3 = 0
have a common line of intersection, if

Detailed Solution for Test: Dimensional Geometry - 9 - Question 19

The three planes are

Denote the determinants as follows:

Note that Δ is th e coefficients of x, y and z . Δ1, Δ2 and Δ3, are obtained from Δ by replacing its first column, 2nd column and 3rd column by d1, d2 and d3, respectively.
Also note that if the three planes are to intersect in a line, then no two of them are parallel. Under this case, the line of intersection of any two planes will lie on the third plane. Now the line of intersection of (i) and (ii) is given by

Since line (iv) lies on plane (iii), therefore is perpendicuar to the normal to the plane (iii)

Also since line (iv) lies on plane (iii), therefore the coordinates of any point on the line will satisfy the equation of plane (iii), since

Thus (A) and (R) are the required conditions for the three planes to have a common line of intersection.
In a similar way, it can he shown that Δ = 0 and Δ1 = 0 or Δ = 0 and Δ2 = 0 are also the required conditions.
∴ (b), (c), (d) are correct.
Remark: To prove that three planes intersect in a line, verify that Δ = 0 and any one: of Δ12 and Δ3 becomes zero.

Test: Dimensional Geometry - 9 - Question 20

Consider the three planes represented by
a1x + b1y + c1z + d1 = 0
a2x + b2y + c2z + d2 = 0
a3x + b3y + c3z + d3 = 0

then the three planes will form a triangular prism if
