Q1.

Solution:

Let us consider,

Now let us simplify, we get

Hence, we can say that the lines are mutually perpendicular.

Q2.

Solution:

Given points are (1, -1, 2) and (3, 4, -2)

The direction ratios of a line passing through the points will be

(3-1, 4+1, -2-2) = (2, 5, -4)

Given points are (0, 3, 2) and (3, 5, 6)

The direction ratios of a line passing through the points will be

(3-0, 5-3, 6-2) = (3, 2, 4)

So,

Now the angle between the lines will be

Hence, we can say that the lines are mutually perpendicular.

Q3.

Solution:

Given points are (4, 7, 8) and (2, 3, 4)

The direction ratios of a line passing through the points will be

(4-2, 7-3, 8-4) = (2, 4, 4)

Given points are (-1, -2, 1) and (1, 2, 5)

The direction ratios of a line passing through the points will be

(-1-1, -2-2, 1-5) = (-2, -4, -4)

So,

The direction ratios are proportional.

2/-2 = 4/-4 = 4/-4

Hence, we can say that the lines are mutually perpendicular.

Q4.

Solution:

It is given that,

The Cartesian equation of a line passing through (x1, y1, z1) and with direction ratios (a1, b1, c1) is

Q5.

Solution:

It is given that.
