Suppose the floor of a hotel is made up of mirror polished Salvatore stone. There is a large crystal chandelier attached to the ceiling of the hotel room. Consider the floor of the hotel room as a plane having the equation x – y + z = 4 and the crystal chandelier is suspended at the point (1, 0, 1). Based on the above answer the following:

1. Find the direction ratios of the perpendicular from the point (1, 0, 1) to the plane x – y + z = 4.

a. (-1, -1, 1)

b. (1, -1, -1)

c. (-1, -1, -1)

d. (1, -1, 1)

2. Find the length of the perpendicular from the point (1, 0, 1) to the plane x – y + z = 4.

a. $\cfrac2{\sqrt3}$ units

b. $\cfrac4{\sqrt3}$ units

c. $\cfrac6{\sqrt3}$ units

d. $\cfrac8{\sqrt3}$units

3. The equation of the perpendicular from the point (1, 0, 1) to the plane x – y + z = 4 is 4. The equation of the plane parallel to the plane x – y + z = 4, which is at a unit distance from the point (1, 0, 1) is

a. x – y + z + (2 - √3 )

b. x – y + z - (2 + √3 )

c. x – y + z + (2 + √3 )

d. Both (a) and (c)

5. The direction cosine of the normal to the plane x – y + z = 4 is +1 vote
by (30.5k points)

1. (d) (1, -1, 1)

2. (a) $\cfrac2{\sqrt3}$ units

3. (c) $\cfrac{x-1}1=\cfrac{y}{-1}=\cfrac{z-1}1$

4. (d) Both (a) and (c)

5. (b) $\Big(\cfrac{1}{\sqrt3},\cfrac{-1}{\sqrt3},\cfrac{1}{\sqrt3}\Big)$
