Solution:

Given that the equation of the plane through point (2, 3, -4) is

a(x âˆ’ 2) + b(y âˆ’ 3)+c(z + 4) = 0           …(1)

Since this plane passes through point (1, -1, 3).

â‡’ a(1 âˆ’ 2) + b( âˆ’1 âˆ’ 3) + c( 3 + 4) = 0

â‡’ âˆ’ a âˆ’ 4b + 7c = 0                             …(2)

Equation(1) is parallel to x-axis and is perpendicular to the yz-plane whose equation is x = 0 or 1 . x + 0 . y + 0 . z = 0

### Question 8. Find the equation of a plane passing through the points (0, 0, 0) and (3, âˆ’1, 2) and parallel to the line

Solution:

Given that the plane pass through point(0, 0, 0), so the equation of the plane is a(x âˆ’ 0) + b(y âˆ’ 0)+c(z + 0) = 0.

â‡’ ax + by + cz = 0         …(1)

and the same plane passes through point (3, -1, 2). So, the equation of the plane is

3a – b + 2c = 0              …(2)

Equation(1) is parallel to the given line so,

a(1) + b(-4) + c (7) = 0     …(3)

On solving eq(1), (2), and (3), we get

â‡’ x – 19y – 11z = 0

Hence, the required equation of the plane is x – 19y – 11z = 0

### Question 9. Find the vector and Cartesian equations of the line passing through (1, 2, 3) and parallel to the planes and

Solution:

Given that the equation of the line passing through (1, 2, 3) is

…(1)

Here, the given line is parallel to plane x â€“ y + 2z = 5

So, a Ã— 1 + b Ã— â€“ 1 + c Ã— 2 = 0

â‡’ a â€“ b + 2c = 0     …(3)

Also, the given line is parallel to plane 3x + y + z = 6

So, a Ã— 3 + b Ã— 1 + c Ã— 1 = 0

â‡’ 3a + b + c = 0    …(4)

On solving the equation (3) and (4) we get,

â‡’

âˆ´ a = â€“ 3k, b = 5k and c = 4k

Solution:

Let us consider a, b and c be the direction ratios.

So,

â‡’ a + 4b + c = 0

and, 5a + 2b – 4c = 0

On solving the above two equations, we get

â‡’

As we know that the line  is parallel to plan a2x + b2y + c2z + d2 = 0, when a1a2 + b1b2 + c1c2 = 0

So, the line with direction ratio(a, b, c) is parallel to plane 4x – 2y – 5z – 2 = 0

aa1 + bb1 + cc1 = 0

2(4) + (-1)(-2) + (2)(-5) = 0

Hence proved that the line of section of the given plane is parallel to the given plane.

### Question 11. Find the vector equation of the line passing through the point (1, -1, 2) and perpendicular to the plane 2x – y + 3z – 5 = 0.

Given that the equation of the line passing through the point (1, -1, 2)

So,

…..(1)

Also, the line is parallel to the normal of the plane.

â‡’

â‡’ a = 2Î», b = -Î» , c = 3Î»

Now put all these values in eq(1), we get

So, the line passes through a point whose position vector is and parallel to

So,

â‡’ is the required equation.

### Question 12. Find the equation of the plane through the points (2, 2, -1) and (3, 4, 2) and parallel to the line whose direction ratios are 7, 0, 6.

Solution:

Given that the equation of the plane through the point (2, 2, -1)

a(x – 2) + b(y – 2) + c(z + 1) = 0     ….(1)

Also, the plane passes through points (3, 4, 2)

a(3 – 2) + b(4 – 2)+ c(2 + 1) = 0

or, a + 2b + 3c = 0     …(2)

As we know that the line  is parallel to plan a2x + b2y + c2z + d2 = 0, when a1a2 + b1b2 + c1c2 = 0

According to the question, the plane(1) is parallel to the line whose direction ratios are 7, 0, 6

So, 7a + 0b + 6c = 0   …(3)

Now, on solving the equation (1), (2), and (3), we have,

â‡’ 12x + 15y – 14z – 68 = 0 is the required equation.

### Question 13. Find the angle between the line and the plane 3x + 4y + z + 5 = 0.
