**NCERT Solutions for Class 12 Maths 3D Geometry ****Exercise**** 11.2 Ques No 1.**

Show that the three lines with direction cosines (12/13, −3/13, −4/13); (4/13, 12/13, 3/13); (3/13, −4/13, 12/13); are mutually perpendicular.

**NCERT Solutions:**

Let the line L_{1} has direction cosines as *l*_{1 }= 12/13, *m*_{1 }= −3/13, *n*_{1 }= −4/13.

Let the line L_{2} has direction cosines as *l*_{2 }= 4/13, *m*_{2 }= 12/13, *n*_{2 }= 3/13.

Let the line L_{3} has direction cosines as *l*_{3 }= 3/13, *m*_{3 }= −4/13, *n*_{3 }= 12/13.

Let the angle between the lines L_{1} and L_{2} is θ_{1}. Then,

cos θ_{1} = |*l*_{1}*l*_{2 }+ *m*_{1}*m*_{2 }+ *n*_{1}*n*_{2}|

= |(12/13 x 4/13) + (−3/13 x 12/13) + (−4/13 x 3/13)|

= |48/169 − 36/169 −12/169|

= |(48 − 36 − 12)/169| = 0 ⇒ θ_{1} = 90^{o }

Thus, the angle between the lines L_{1} and L_{2} is 90^{o}.

Let the angle between the lines L_{2} and L_{3} is θ_{2}. Then,

cos θ_{2} = |*l*_{2}*l*_{3 }+ *m*_{2}*m*_{3 }+ *n*_{2}*n*_{3}|

= |(4/13 x 3/13) + (12/13 x −4/13) + (3/13 x 12/13)|

= |12/169 − 48/169 + 36/169| = |(12 − 48 + 36)/169| = 0

⇒ θ_{2} = 90^{o }

Thus, the angle between the lines L_{2} and L_{3} is 90^{o}.

Let the angle between the lines L_{1} and L_{3} is θ_{3}. Then,

cos θ_{3} = |*l*_{1}*l*_{3 }+ *m*_{1}*m*_{3 }+ *n*_{1}*n*_{3}|

= |(12/13 x 3/13) + (−3/13 x −4/13) + (−4/13 x 12/13)|

= |36/169 + 12/169 − 48/169| = |(36 + 12 − 48)/169| = 0

⇒ θ_{3} = 90^{o }

Thus, the angle between the lines L_{1} and L_{3} is 90^{o}.

Therefore the given lines are mutually perpendicular.

Show that the line through the points (1, – 1, 2), (3, 4, – 2) is perpendicular to the line through the points (0, 3, 2) and (3, 5, 6).

**NCERT Solutions:**

Direction ratios of the line joining the points A(1, – 1, 2) and B(3, 4, – 2) are

a_{1} = (3 – 1) = 2, b_{1} = (4 + 1) = 5, c_{1} = (–2 – 2) = –4

a_{2} = (3 – 0) = 3, b_{2} = (5 – 3) = 2, c_{2} = (6 – 2) = 4.

Now, two lines with direction ratios a_{1}, b_{1}, c_{1} and a_{2}, b_{2}, c_{2} are perpendicular if

a_{1}a_{2 }+ b_{1}b_{2 }+ c_{1}c_{2 }= 0

Since a_{1}a_{2 }+ b_{1}b_{2 }+ c_{1}c_{2 }= (2 x 3) + (5 x 2) + (–4 x 4) = 6 + 10 – 16 = 0, then the given lines AB and CD are perpendicular.

a_{1} = (2 – 4) = –2, b_{1} = (3 – 7) = –4, c_{1} = (4 – 8) = –4

a_{2} = (1 + 1) = 2, b_{2} = (2 + 2) = 4, c_{2} = (5 – 1) = 4.

Now, two lines with direction ratios a_{1}, b_{1}, c_{1} and a_{2}, b_{2}, c_{2} are parallel if

Since , then the given lines AB and CD are parallel.

Find the equation of the line which passes through the point (1, 2, 3) and is parallel to the vector 3**i** + 2**j** −2**k**.

**NCERT Solutions:**

Given that the line which passes through the point A(1, 2, 3). Then, **a** = **i** + 2**j** + 3**k**. And, the this line is parallel to the vector **b** = 3**i** + 2**j** −2**k**.

We know that the vector equation of the line passing through **a** and parallel to **b** is **r** = **a** + **λb**. where **λ **is any real number.

Find the equation of the line in vector and in Cartesian form that passes through the point with position vector 2**i**− **j** + 4**k** and is in the direction **i** + 2**j** − **k**.

**NCERT Solutions:**

Given that the line which passes through the point with position vector **a** = 2**i**− **j** + 4**k** and is in the direction **b** = **i** + 2**j** − **k**.

We know that the vector equation of the line passing through **a** and parallel to **b** is **r** = **a** + **λb**. where **λ **is any real number.

Thus, the vector equation of the given line is **r** = (2**i**− **j** + 4**k****) + **λ** (i + 2j − k)**.

Since r is the position vector of any point P(x, y, z), then **r** = x**i** + y**j** + z**k**.

Thus,

x**i** + y**j** + z**k** = (2**i**− **j** + 4**k****) + **λ**(i + 2j − k) **

** ⇒ **x
