Question 1. Solution: Question 2.
Find the volume of the parallelepiped whose coterminous edges are represented by the vectors .
Solution:
Volume of the parallelepiped = $$\| \vec{a}, \vec{b}, \vec{c}]$$ = -264 + 224 + 760 = 720 cubic units Question 3.
The volume of the parallelepiped whose coterminus edges are , $$-3 \vec{i}+7 \vec{j}+5 \vec{k}$$ is 90 cubic units. Find the value of λ
Solution:
Given, Volume of the parallelepiped = 90 cubic units Question 4.
If $$\vec{a}, \vec{b}, \vec{c}$$ are three non-coplanar vectors represented by concurrent edges of a parallelepiped of volume 4 cubic units, find the value of Solution:
Let $$\vec{a}, \vec{b}, \vec{c}$$ be the concurrent edges of parallelepiped
Given volume of parallelepiped = 4 cubic units Question 5.
Find the altitude of a parallelepiped determined by the vectors $$\vec{a}=-2 \hat{i}+5 \hat{j}+3 \hat{k}$$, $$\hat{b}=\hat{i}+3 \hat{j}-2 \hat{k}$$ and $$\vec{c}=-3 \vec{i}+\vec{j}+4 \vec{k}$$ if the base is taken as the parallelogram determined by b and c.
Solution:
Volume = Base Area × Height
$$|[\vec{a}, \vec{b}, \vec{c}]|=|\vec{b} \times \vec{c}|$$ × Height  Question 6.
Determine whether the three vectors $$2 \hat{i}+3 \hat{j}+\hat{k}, \hat{i}-2 \hat{j}+2 \hat{k}$$ and $$3 \hat{i}+\hat{j}+3 \hat{k}$$ are coplanar.
Solution: Question 7.
Let If c1 = 1 and c2 = 2, find c3 such that $$\vec{a}, \vec{b}$$ and $$\vec{c}$$ and c are coplanar.
Solution: Question 8.
If , show that $$[\vec{a} \vec{b} \vec{c}]$$ depends neither x nor y.
Solution: Question 9.
If the vectors are coplanar, prove that c is the geometric mean of a and b.
Solution: ∴ c is the geometric means of ‘a’ and ‘b’.

Question 10.
Let $$\vec{a}, \vec{b}, \vec{c}$$ be three non-zero vectors such that $$\vec{c}$$ is a unit vector perpendicular to both $$\vec{a}$$ and $$\vec{b}$$. If the angle between $$\vec{a}$$ and $$\vec{b}$$ is $$\frac{\pi}{6}$$ show that .

Question 1.
If the edges meet a vertex, find the volume of the parallelepiped.
Solution:
Volume of the parallelepiped = The volume cannot be negative
∴ Volume of parallelepiped = 264 cu. units

Question 2.
If and $$\vec{x} \neq \overrightarrow{0}$$ then show that $$\vec{a}, \vec{b}, \vec{c}$$ are coplanar.
Solution:  Question 3.
The volume of a parallelepiped whose edges are represented by $$-12 \vec{i}+\lambda k$$, $$3 \vec{j}-\vec{k}, 2 \vec{i}+\vec{j}-15 \vec{k}$$ is 546. Find the value of λ.
Solution:
Volume of the parallelepiped = = -12 [-45 + 1] – 0 () + λ [0 – 6] = -12 (-44) -6 λ
= 528 – 6λ = 546 (given)
⇒ -6λ = 546 – 528 = 18
∴ λ = $$\frac{18}{-6}$$ = -3

Question 4.
Prove that $$|\vec{a} \vec{b} \vec{c}|$$ = abc if and only if $$\vec{a}, \vec{b}, \vec{c}$$ are mutually perpendicular.
Solution:  Question 5.
