Solution:
Given planes are
$$\vec{r} \cdot(2 \hat{i}-7 \hat{j}+4 \hat{k})$$ = 3
2x – 7y + 4z – 3 = 0 and 3x – 5y + 4z + 11 = 0
Equation of a plane which passes through the line of intersection of the planes
(2x – 7y + 4z – 3) + λ(3x – 5y + 4z + 11) = 0 …………… (1)
This passes through the point (-2, 1, 3).
(1) ⇒ (-4 – 7 + 12 – 3) + λ(-6 – 5 + 12 + 11) = 0
-2 + λ(12) = 0 ⇒ 12λ = 2
λ = $$\frac{2}{12}$$ ⇒ λ = $$\frac{1}{6}$$
The required equation is
(1) ⇒ (2x – 7y + 4z – 3) + $$\frac{1}{6}$$ (3x – 5y + 4z + 11) = 0
12x – 42y + 24z – 18 + 3x – 5y + 4z + 11 = 0
15x – 47y + 28z – 7 = 0

Solution:
Equation of a plane which passes through the line of intersection of the plane
(x + 2y + 3z – 2) + λ(x – y + z – 3) = 0
(1 + λ)x + (2 – λ)y + (3 + λ)z + (-2 – 3λ) = 0 ………….. (1)  Question 3.

Solution:
The required equation parallel to the plane
2x – 3y + 5z + 7 = 0 ………….. (1)
2x – 3y + 5z + λ = 0 ………….. (2)
This passes through (3, 4, -1)
(2) ⇒ 2(3) – 3(4) + 5(-1) + λ = 0
6 – 12 – 5 + 1 = 0
λ = 11
(2) ⇒ The required equation is 2x – 3y + 5z + 11 =0 …………… (3)
∴ Now, distance between the above parallel lines (1) and (3)
a = 2, b = -3, c = 5, d1 = 7, d2 = 11 Question 6.

Solution:
Any point on the line x – 1 = $$\frac{y}{2}$$ = z + 1 is
x – 1 = $$\frac{y}{2}$$ = z + 1 = λ,(say)
(λ + 1, 2λ, λ – 1)
This passes through the plane 2x – y + 2z = 2
2(λ + 1) – 2λ + 2(λ – 1) = 2
2λ + 2 – 2λ + 2λ – 2 = 2
λ = 1
∴ The required point of intersection is (2, 2, 0)
Angle between the line and the plane is Question 8.
Find the coordinates of the foot of the perpendicular and length of the perpendicular from the point (4, 3, 2) to the plane x + 2y + 3z = 2
Solution: Direction of the normal plane (1, 2, 3)
d.c.s of the PQ is $$\frac{x_{1}-4}{1}=\frac{y_{1}-3}{2}=\frac{z_{1}-2}{3}$$ = k
x1 = k + 4, y1 = 2k + 3, z1 = 3k + 2
This passes through the plane x + 2y + 3z = 2
k + 4 + 2(2k + 3) + 3(3k + 2) = 2
k + 4 + 4k + 6 + 9k + 6 = 2
14k = 2 – 16 ⇒ 14k = -14
k = -1
∴ The coordinate of the foot of the perpendicular is (3, 1, -1)
∴ Length of the perpendicular to the plane is ### Samacheer Kalvi 12th Maths Solutions Chapter 6 Applications of Vector Algebra Ex 6.9 Additional Problems

Question 1.
Find the point of intersection of the line passing through the two points (1, 1, – 1); (-1, 0,1) and the xy-plane.
Solution:
The equation of the line passing through (1, 1,-1) and (-1, 0, 1) is Question 2.
Find the co-ordinates of the point where the line $$\vec{r}=(\vec{i}+2 \vec{j}-5 \vec{k})+t(2 \vec{i}-3 \vec{j}+4 \vec{k})$$ meets the plane $$\vec{r} \cdot(2 \vec{i}+4 \vec{j}-\vec{k})$$ = 3.
Solution:
The equation of the straight line in the cartesian form is
$$\frac{x-1}{2}=\frac{y-2}{-3}=\frac{z+5}{4}$$ = λ (say)
∴ Any point on this line is of the form (2λ + 1, -3λ, + 2, 4λ – 5)
The cartesian equation of the plane is 2x + 4y – z – 3 = 0
But the required point lies on this plane.
∴ 2(2λ + 1) + 4(-3λ + 2) – (4λ – 5 ) – 3 = 0 ⇒ λ = 1
∴ The required point is (3, -1, -1).

Question 3.
Find the point of intersection of the line $$\vec{r}=(\vec{j}-\vec{k})+s(2 \vec{i}-\vec{j}+\vec{k})$$ and xz-plane.
Solution:
The given point is (0, 1, -1); parallel vector is $$2 \vec{i}-\vec{j}+\vec{k}$$ .
The equation of the line passing through the point (0, 1, -1) and parallel to the vector $$2 \vec{i}-\vec{j}+\vec{k}$$ is ∴ The required point is (2, 0, 0) Question 4.
Find the meeting point of the line $$\vec{r}=(2 \vec{i}+\vec{j}-3 \vec{k})+t(2 \vec{i}-\vec{j}-\vec{k})$$ and the plane x – 2y + 3z + 7 = 0.
Solution:
The equation of the straight line in cartesian form is
$$\frac{x-2}{2}=\frac{y-1}{-1}=\frac{z+3}{-1}$$ = λ (say)
Any point on the line is (2λ, + 2, -λ + 1, λ – 3)
The point lies on the plane x – 2y + 3z + 7 = 0
⇒ 2λ, + 2 – 2(-λ + 1) + 3(-λ, – 3) + 7 = 0 .
2λ + 2 + 2λ – 2 – 3λ – 9 + 7 = 0
λ – 2 = 0 ⇒ λ = 2
So 2λ + 2 = 6; -λ + 1 = -1; -λ – 3 = – 5
∴ The required point is (6, -1, -5)

Question 5.
Show that the following planes are at right angles: Solution:
The normal vectors are
$$\bar{n}_{1}=2 \bar{i}-\bar{j}+\bar{k}$$ and $$\vec{n}_{2}=+\vec{i}-\vec{j}-3 \vec{k}$$
$$\vec{n}_{1} \cdot \vec{n}_{2}$$ = (2)(1) + (-1)(-1) + (1)(-3) = 2 + 1 – 3 = 0
⇒ $$\vec{n}_{1}$$ ⊥r to $$\vec{n}_{2}$$, i.e., the normals to the planes are at right angles. So, the planes are at right angles.

Question 6.
The planes $$\vec{r} \cdot(2 \vec{i}+\lambda \vec{j}-3 \vec{k})$$ = 10 and $$\vec{r} \cdot(\lambda \vec{i}+3 \vec{j}+\vec{k})$$ = 5 are perpendicular. Find λ.
Solution:
Since the planes are perpendicular, the angle between the normals = 90°.
The normals are $$\vec{n}_{1}=2 \vec{i}+\lambda \vec{j}-3 \vec{k}$$ and $$\vec{n}_{2}=\lambda \vec{i}+3 \vec{j}+\vec{k}$$
$$\vec{n}_{1} \cdot \vec{n}_{2}$$ = 0 [∵ θ = π/2]
⇒ (2)(λ) + (λ)(3) + (-3)(1) = 0 ⇒ 2λ + 3λ – 3 = 0
5λ – 3 = 0 ⇒ 5λ = 3 ⇒ λ = 3/5

Question 7.
Find the angle between the line $$\frac{x-2}{3}=\frac{y+1}{-1}=\frac{z-3}{-2}$$ and the plane 3x + 4y + z = 0.
Solution:
The angle between the line $$\vec{r}=\vec{a}+t \vec{b}$$ and the plane $$\vec{r} \cdot \vec{n}$$ = p is given by the formula  Question 8.
Find the angle between the line $$\vec{r}=\vec{i}+\vec{j}+3 \vec{k}+\lambda(2 \vec{i}+\vec{j}-\vec{k})$$ and the plane $$\vec{r} \cdot(\vec{i}+\vec{j})$$ = 1,
Solution:
