Quiz on Three Dimensional Geometry
Q1. A line with direction cosines proportional to 2, 1, 2 meets each of the lines x = y + a = z and x + a = 2y = 2z. The coordinates of each of the points of intersection are given by __________.
Solution:
Let the two lines be AB and CD having equations
x / 1 = [y + a] / 1 = z / 1 = λ and [x + a] / [2] = y / 1 = z / 1 = μ then
P = (λ, λ − a, λ) and Q = (2μ − a, μ, μ)
So, according to question, [λ − 2μ + a] / [2] = [λ − a − μ] / [1] = [λ − μ] / [2]
μ = a and λ = 3a
Therefore, P = (3a, 2a, 3a) and [(x − 2)^{2} +(y − 3)^{2 }+ (z − 4)^{2}].
Q2. The distance of the point (1, 2, 3) from the plane x − y + z = 5 measured parallel to the line x / 2 = y / 3 = z / −6, is __________.
a) 1
b) 2
c) 3
d) 4
Solution:
Direction cosines of line = (2 / 7, 3 / 7, −6 / 7)
Now, x′ = 1 + [2r /7], y′ = −2+ [3r / 7] and z′ = 3 − [6r / 7]
Therefore, (1 + [2r / 7]) − (−2 + [3r / 7]) + (3 − [6r / 7])
= 5
⇒ r = 1
Q3. The centre of the sphere passes through four points (0, 0, 0), (0, 2, 0), (1, 0, 0) and (0, 0, 4) is ________.
Solution:
Let the equation of sphere be x^{2} + y^{2} + z^{2} + 2ux + 2vy + 2wz + d = 0
Because it passes through origin (0, 0, 0), d = 0 and also, it passes through (0, 2, 0)
4 + 4v = 0 ⇒ v = −1
Also, it passes through (1, 0, 0)
1 + 2u = 0 ⇒ u = − 1/2
And it passes through (0, 0, 4)
16 + 8w ⇒ w = −2
Centre (−u, −v, −w)=(1 / 2, 1, 2)
Q4. Coordinate of a point equidistant from the points (0,0,0), (a, 0, 0), (0, b, 0), (0, 0, c) is ___________.
Solution:
The required point is the centre of the sphere through the given points.
Let the equation of sphere be x^{2} + y^{2} + z^{2} + 2ux + 2vy + 2wz + d = 0 …..(i)
Sphere (i) is passing through (0, 0, 0), (a, 0, 0), (0, b, 0) and (0, 0, c), hence, d = 0
a^{2 }+ 2ua = 0 ⇒ u = −a/2
b^{2} + 2vb = 0 ⇒ v = −b/2
c^{2 }+ 2wc = 0 ⇒ w = −c/2
Therefore, centre of sphere is (a/2, b/2, c/2), which is also the required point.
Q5. The projection of any line on coordinate axes be, respectively 3, 4, 5 then its length is ______.
a) 2√2
b) 4√2
c) 3√2
d) 5√2
d) 5√2
Solution:
Let the line segment be AB, then as given AB cos α = 3, AB cos β = 4, AB cos γ = 5
⇒ AB^{2 }(cos^{2}α + cos^{2}β + cos^{2}γ) = 3^{2} + 4^{2} + 5^{2}
AB = √[9 + 16 + 25] = 5√2,
where α, β and γ are the angles made by the line with the axes.
