Find the equation of the line through P(-1,0,1) that cuts the line r=(3,2,1)+t(1,2,2) at right-angles at Q Also find the length PQ and the equation of the plane containing the two lines. Given that a=(3,2,1) and b=(1,-2,-4) are the position vectors of the points P and Q respectively, find a)the equation of the plane passing through Q and the perpendicular to PQ b)the distance from the point (-1,1,1)to the plane in (a) November 23rd, 2011, 03:19 PM   #2
