Cartesian Equations of a Line
Given a point, P = (x0, y0, z0), and a directional vector , the Cartesian equation of a line is:
1.Find the equations of the line that pass through the point A = (1, 2, 1) and whose direction vector is .
2.Find the equations of the line that pass through the points A = (1, 0, 1) and B = (0, 1, 1).
3.Given the line r:
Find its equations in parametric and Cartesian form.
4The equation of a line r is:
Do the points A = (0, −2, −2) and B = (3, 2, 6) belong to the line r?
5.Find the equation of the line that is parallel to the lines given by x = 3λ, y = λ and z = 2λ + 2, and contains the point P(0, 1, −1).
6.A straight line is parallel to the planes x + y = 0 and x + z = 0. If it passes through the point (2, 0, 0), find its equation.
The direction vector of the line is perpendicular to the normal vectors of each plane.
