Q1 :

What are the direction cosines of a line that makes equal angles with the co-ordinate axes?


Answer :

Suppose a line l makes an angle α with the co-ordinate axes.

l = m = n = cosα

∵ l2 + m2 + n2= 1



cos2α+cos2α+cos2α=13cos2α = 1cosα =± 13√l = m = n = Â± 13√

Q2 :

If a⃗ â‹…a⃗ =0 and a⃗ â‹…b⃗ =0, then what can be concluded about the vector b⃗ ?


Answer :

Given, a⃗ â‹…a⃗ =0 and a⃗ â‹…b⃗ =0

∣∣a⃗ âˆ£âˆ£2=0 and |a|-→∣∣b⃗ âˆ£âˆ£cosθ=0∣∣a⃗ âˆ£âˆ£=0 and |a|-→∣∣b⃗ âˆ£âˆ£cosθ=0

Therefore, we can conclude that b⃗   can be any vector which makes an angle θ with the zero vector a⃗ .

Q3 :

Write the position vector of the mid-point of the vector joining the points P(2, 3, 4) and Q(4, 1, −2).


Answer :

The position vector of the mid-point R of the vector joining the points P(2, 3, 4) and Q(4, 1, -2),

OR-→-= (2iˆ + 3jˆ + 4kˆ) + (4iˆ + jˆ - 2kˆ)2       = (2 + 4)iˆ + (3 + 1)jˆ + (4 - 2)kˆ2        = 6iˆ + 4jˆ + 2kˆ2        = 3iˆ + 2jˆ + kˆ

Q23 :

A cottage industry manufactures pedestal lamps and wooden shades, each requiring the use of grinding/cutting machine and a sprayer. It takes 2 hours on the grinding/cutting machine and 3 hours on the sprayer to manufacture a pedestal lamp. It takes one hour on the grinding/cutting machine and 2 hours on the sprayer to manufacture a shade. On any day, the sprayer is available for at most 20 hours and the grinding/cutting machine for at most 12 hours. The profit from the sale of a lamp is Rs 5 and that from a shade is Rs 3. Assuming that the manufacturer can sell all the lamps and shades that he produces, how should he schedule his daily production in order to maximise his profit? Make an L.P.P. and solve it graphically.
