Answer 14:

Suppose, m→=i^+j^+k^Then,∣∣m→∣∣=(1)2+(1)2+(1)2−−−−−−−−−−−−−−√=3–√

The direction cosines of the vector m→ are (13√,13√,13√)

Now, let α, β, and γ be the angles formed by with the positive directions of x, y, and z axes.

Thus, we obtain,

cosα=13√,cosβ=13√andcosγ=13√

Thus, the vector is evenly tending to the axes OX, OY and OZ

Answer 19:

The two vectors are said to be collinear when they are parallel to each other.

Thus, we have,

q→=λp→,(forsomescalarλ)Suppose,λ=±1,thenq→=±1p→If,p→=p1i^+p2j^+p3k

^,q→=q1i^+q2j^+q3k^,thenq→=λp→. q1i^+q2j^+q3k^=λ(p1i^+p2j^+p3k^)q1i^+q

Hence, the components of p→andq→ are proportional.

Though, vectors p→andq→ can have different directions.

Thus, statement (iv) is incorrect.

respectively having m .n =6–√

Solution 1:

It is given that,

|m |=3–√ ,

|n | = 2

And m .n =6–√

m .n =|m ||n |cosθ

Now, we know that

Therefore,

⇒ 6–√=3–√×2×cosθ

⇒ cosθ=6√3√×2

⇒ cosθ=12√

⇒ θ=π4

Therefore, the angle between the given vectors m and n is π4

Therefore,

Q 3. Find the projection of the vector a^–b^ on the vector a^+b^.

Solution 3:

Let, i^=a^–b^

And j^=a^+b^

Now, projection of vector i on j is given by,

1∣∣j ∣∣(i

.j )=11+1√{1.1+(–1)(1)}=12√(1–1)=0

Hence the projection of vector i on j is 0

Solution 4:

Now, projection of vector i on j is given by,

1j (i .j )=172+(–1)2+82√{1(7)+3(–1)+7(8)} 1j (i .j )=7–

Also, show that they are mutually perpendicular to each other.

Solution 5:

67b^+27c^Letk =17(6a^+2b^–3c^)=67a^+27b^–37c^

⇒ ∣∣i ∣∣=(27)2+(37)2+(67)2−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−√

∣∣i ∣∣=449+949+3649−−−−−−−−−−√ ∣∣i ∣∣=1

⇒ ∣∣j ∣∣=(37)2+(–67)2+(27)2−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−√

∣∣j ∣∣=949+3649+449−−−−−−−−−−√ ∣∣j ∣∣=1

⇒ ∣∣k ∣∣=(67)2+(27)2+(–37)2−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−√

∣∣k ∣∣=3649+449+949−−−−−−−−−−√ ∣∣k ∣∣=1

Thus, each of the given three vectors is a unit vector.

⇒ i .j =27×37+37×(−67)+67×27

i .j =649–1849+1249 i .j =0

⇒ j .k =37×67+−67×(27)+27×−37

j .k =1849–1249–649 j .k =0

⇒ k .i =67×27+27×(37)+−37×67

k .i =1249–649–1849 k .i =0

Hence, the given three vectors are mutually perpendicular to each other.

⇒ |m |2–|n |2=8

⇒ 8|n |2–|n|2=8 . . . . . . . . . [|m =8|n ||]

⇒ 64|n |2–|n |2=8

⇒ 63|n |2=8

5n .7n =6m .m +21m .n –10n .m –35n .n =6|m |2+11m .n –35|n |2

Q 8: Find the magnitude of two vectors m andn , having the same magnitude and such

that the angle between them is 60° and their scalar product is 12

Solution 8:

As given in the question:

We know that:

Therefore,

⇒ 12=|m |2×12

⇒ |m |2=1

⇒ |m |2=|n |2=1

Q 9: Find:

Solution 9:

(y –b ).(y +b )=12

⇒ y .y +y .b –b .y –b .b =12

⇒ |y |2–∣∣b ∣∣2=12

⇒ |y |2–1=12[∣∣b ∣∣=1asb isaunitvector]

⇒ |y |2=13

|y |=13−−√

Q 10: If i

=2a^+2b^+3c^ ,

j =−a^+2b^+c^

and k =3a^+b^ are such that i +λj is perpendicular to k then find the value of λ

Solution 10:

Now,

i +λj =(2a^+2b^+3c^)+λ(–a^+2b^+c^)=(2–λ)a^+(2+2λ)b^+(3+λ)c^

If (i +λj ) is perpendicular to k ,then

(i +λj ).k =0

⇒ [(2–λ)a^+(2+2λ)b^+(3+λ)c^](3a^+b^)=0

⇒ [(2–λ)3+(2+2λ)1+(3+λ)0]=0

⇒ 6–3λ+2+2λ=0

⇒ –λ+8=0

⇒ λ=8

Hence, the required value of λ is 8.

|a |b +∣∣b ∣∣a is perpendicular to |a |b –∣∣b ∣∣a , for any two non zero

vectors a andb

Solution 11:

(|a |b +∣∣b ∣∣a ).(|a |b –∣∣b ∣∣a ) = |a |2b .b –

|a |∣∣b ∣∣b .a +∣∣b ∣∣|a |a .b –∣∣b ∣∣2a .a

=|a |2∣∣b ∣∣2

(|a |b +∣∣b ∣∣a ).(|a |b –∣∣b ∣∣a ) = 0

Hence, |a |b +∣∣b ∣∣a is perpendicular to |a |b –∣∣b ∣∣a

Q 12: If a .a =0anda .b =0, then what can be concluded about the vector b ?

Solution:

Now,

that a .a =0

⇒ |a |2=0

⇒ |a |=0

Therefore, a is a zero vector

Hence, vector b satisfying a .b =0 can be any vector

Q 13:

of a .b +b .c +c .a

Solution 13:

∣∣a +b +c ∣∣2 = |a |2+∣∣b ∣∣2+|c |2+2(a .b +b .c +c .a )

⇒ 0=1+1+1+2(a .b +b .c +c .a )

⇒ (a .b +b .c +c .a )=–32

Q 14: If either vector a =0 orb =0 , then a .b =0. But the converse need not be

true. Justify your answer with an example.

Solution 14:

Then,

a .b =2.3+4.3+3(–6)=6+12–18=0

We now observe that :

|a |=22+42+32−−−−−−−−−−√=29−−√

Therefore,

a ≠0 ∣∣b ∣∣=32+32+(−6)2−−−−−−−−−−−−√=54−−√

Therefore,

Hence, ∆ ABC is a right – angled triangle.

Q 18:

If a is a nonzero vector of magnitude ‘a’ and λ a nonzero scalar, then λ a is unit vector

if

(A) λ = 1

(B) λ = – 1

(C) a=|λ|

(D) a=1|λ|

Solution 18:

Now,

|λa |=1

⇒ |λ||a |=1

⇒ |a |=1|λ| . . . . . . . . . . . . [ λ ≠ 0 ]

⇒ a=1|λ| . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [|a |=a ]

Therefore, vector λa is a unit vector if a=1|λ|

The correct answer is D.

Exercise 10.4

Q 1: Find ∣∣a ×b ∣∣ , if a =i^–7j^+7k^ and b =3i^–2j^+2k^

Solution 1:

We have,

a ×b =∣∣∣∣∣i^13j^–7–2k^72∣∣∣∣∣

a ×b = i^(–14+14)–j^(2–21)+k^(–2+21)=19j^+19k^

Therefore,

∣∣a ×b ∣∣=(19)2+(19)2−−−−−−−−−−√=2×(19)2−−−−−−−√=192–√

where a =3i^+2j^+2k^andb =i^+2j^–2k^

Solution 2:

We have,

a =3i^+2j^+2k^andb =i^+2j^–2k^

Therefore,

b )=∣∣∣∣∣i^42j^40k^04∣∣∣∣∣ (a +b )×(a –b )=i^(16)–j^(16)+k^(–8)=16i^–16j^–

8k^ ∣∣(a +b )×(a –b )∣∣=162+(–16)2+(–

8)2−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−√ ∣∣(a +b )×(a –

b )∣∣=22×82+22×82+82−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−√ ∣∣(a +b )×(a –

b )∣∣=822+22+1−−−−−−−−−√=89–√=8×3=24

Therefore, the unit vector perpendicular to each of the vectors a +b anda –b is given by

the relation,

= ±(a +b )×(a –b )∣∣(a +b )×(a –b )∣∣=±16i^–16j^–8k^24

= ±2i^–2j^–k^3=±23i^∓23j^∓13k^

Q 3: If a unit vector a makes angle π3withi^,π4anglewithj^ and an acute angle θ

with k , then find θ and hence, the compounds of a

Solution 3:

a =a1i^+a2j^+a3k^

Since, a is a unit vector , |a |=1

Also, it is given that a makes angles π3withi^,π4anglewithj^ and an acute angle θ with k

Then, we have :

cosπ3=a1∣∣a ∣∣

⇒ 12=a1..........[|a |=1]

cosπ4=a2∣∣a ∣∣

⇒ 12√=a2..........[|a |=1]

Also , cosθ=a3∣∣a ∣∣

⇒ a3=cosθ

|a|=1

⇒ a12+a22+a32−−−−−−−−−−−−√=1

⇒ 122+12√2+cos2θ=1

⇒ 14+12+cos2θ=1

⇒ 34+cos2θ=1

⇒ cos2θ=1–34=14

⇒ cosθ=12θ=cos−1(12)θ=π3

Therefore,

a3=cosπ3=12

Therefore, θ=π3andthecomponentsofa are(12,12√,12)

Q 4: Show that:

(a –b )×(a +b )=2(a ×b )

Solution:

To prove:

(a –b )×(a +b )=2(a ×b )

= (a –b )×(a +b )=(a −b )×a +(a –b )×b . . . . . . . . . . . . [ By distributivity of

vector product over addition ]

= a ×a –b ×a +a ×b –b ×b . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [ again, by distributivity of vector

product over addition ]

= 0 +a ×b +a ×b –0

= 2a ×b

Q 5: Find λandμif(2i^+6j^+27k^)×(i^+λj^+μk^)=0

Solution:

(2i^+6j^+27k^)×(i^+λj^+μk^)=0

⇒ ∣∣∣∣∣i^21j^6λμk^27∣∣∣∣∣ = 0i^+0j^+0k^

⇒ i^(6μ–27μ)–j^(2μ–27)+k^(2λ–6)=0i^+0j^+0k^

On comparing the corresponding components, we have :

6μ–27λ=02μ–27=02λ–6=0

Now,

2λ–6=0⇒λ=3

⇒ 2μ–27=0⇒μ=272

Therefore, λ=3andμ=272

Q 6: Given that:

a .b =0anda ×b =0

What can you conclude about the vectors a andb ?

Solution:

a .b =0

Then ,

2. ii) Either a =0orb =0,ora ∥b (incasea andb arenon–zero)a ×b =0

But, a andb cannot be perpendicular and parallel simultaneously.

Therefore, |a |=0or∣∣b ∣∣=0

Q 7: Let the

vectors a ,b ,c givenasa1i^+a2j^+a3k^,b1i^+b2j^+b3k^,c1i^+c2j^+c3k^

Then show that = a ×(b +c )=a ×b +a ×c

Solution:

We have,

a1i^+a2j^+a3k^,b1i^+b2j^+b3k^,c1i^+c2j^+c3k^ (b +c )=(b1+c1)i^+(b2+c2)j^+(b

3+c3)k^

Now, a ×(b +c )∣∣∣∣∣i^a1b1+c1j^a2b2+c2k^a3b3+c3∣∣∣∣∣

=i^[a2(b3+c3)–a3(b2+c2)]–j^[a1(b3+c3)–a3(b1+c1)]+k^[a1(b2+c2)–a2(b1+c1)]

=i^[a2b3+a2c3–a3b2–a3c2]+j^[–a1b3–a1c3+a3b1+a3c1]+k^[a1b2+a1c2–a2b1–a2c1]. . .

.............. (1)

⇒ a ×b =∣∣∣∣∣i^a1b1j^a2b2k^a3b3∣∣∣∣∣

= i^[a2b3–a3b2]+j^[a3b1–a1b3]+k^[a1b2–a2b1] . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ( 2 )

⇒ a ×c =∣∣∣∣∣I^a1c1j^a2c2k^a3c3∣∣∣∣∣

i^[a2c3–a3c2]+j^[a3c1–a1c3]+k^[a1c2–a2c1] . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ( 3 )

On adding (2) and (3), we get:

(a ×b )+(a ×c )=i^[a2b3+a2c3+–a3b2–a3c2]+j^[a3b1+a3c1+–a1b3–

a1c3]+k^[a1b2+a1c2+–a2b1–a2c1]. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ( 4 )

Now, from (1) and (4), we have:

a ×(b +c )=a ×b +a ×c

Hence, the given result is proved.
