**theorems The graph of every linear equation**

is a plane with normal vector (a,b,c) 2. Two planes with normal vectors a & b are (i) parallel if a and b are parallel (ii) orthogonal if a and b are orthogonal

**Extra :Cross product Definition: is right-handed where determinant**

where x,y,and z are unit vectors, here u x v is always perpendicular to u and v Therefore we can find the normal of the plane from two vectors on the plane

**Cross product 1. The answer is "Elephant grape sine-theta."**

The magnitude of the cross product is given by What’s the dot product??? Joke presented on the television sitcom Head of the Class . The teacher asks: "What do you get when you cross an elephant and a grape?" The answer is "Elephant grape sine-theta."

**Find the normal to the plane**

Procedure: 1.Find the two vectors lie on the plane 2. find cross product of the two vectors Example: find the Cartesian equation of the plane through A(1,2,1), B(2,-1,-4) and C(1,0,-1) Two vectors on the plane: AB=(-1,3,5) and AC=(0,2,2) The vector is perpendicular to both AB and AC Therefore -4i+2j-2k is one of the normal to the plane ,equation is -4x+2y-2z=-2

**5 1 Plane A Plane B Angle between planes There is a line of**

Intersection m Parallel (- identical?) 1 Given the two vector equations of the lines, you can examine the three simultaneous equations: If two equations yield a specific pair of values (t,s) and the third equation is consistent, then there is an intersection. If there are no solutions, the lines are skew or parallel. If q is a multiple of p, the lines are parallel, otherwise they are skew. If there are an infinite number of solutions, the lines are identical. p θ The angle between two lines is easily found using the dot product. q

**2 To examine whether a point is on a line, simply find a value of the**

Parameter t which satisfies the equation for each coordinate: If there is no value of t which makes these equations all true, then the point m is not on the line. To find the distance from the point m to the line: calculate the unit normal vector Find the displacement vector from A to m Take the dot product of these two vectors Use Pythagoras to find the third side of the triangle X d A M

19
**3 Line A Plane B Given a plane: and a line:**

… the line is parallel to the plane if: Moreover it is in the plane, also, if: This must be true for all t, so t must cancel out and the LHS=RHS= a constant. If there are no solutions for t: the line is parallel to the plane, but not in it. If there is one solution for t: the line intersects the plane. In the last case,

**4 n Point A Given a plane: Plane B and a point:**

There are only two possibilities: the point is in the plane, or it isn’t. To check if it is in the plane: simply substitute the coordinates of m into the equation of the plane. n To find the distance of the point from the plane: A (a,b,c) The simplest way is to find a unit normal vector and then calculate: d m

**5 Plane A Given a plane: Plane B and a plane:**

To find the equation of the line: Choose any two values of x. Use the two plane equations to find the corresponding y and z which solves both plane equations Now you have two points on the line, so you can find its equation

23
**Finding a common perpendicular**

Read section 13.4 p carefully. The method described is actually the method to find the cross product. Find a vector perpendicular to each pair of vectors: Note that this method is a good way to find the equation of a plane through three points A, B, C:
