Solution: The cone passes through the axes. Therefore the verrtex of the cone is the origin. The equation of the cone is homogeneous of second degree in x, y and z.

i.e.,

Given that x-axis is a generator. Then y = 0, z = 0 must satisfy the equation (1). Therefore, a = 0. Similarly, y and z axes are generators imply that b = 0 and c = 0 Hence the equation of the cone is fyz gzx hxy 0

The equation of line CN is

 x  0 y  1 z  2   1 2 2

Any point on this line is (r, 2r - 1, 2r - 2).

If this point is N, it satisfies plane (2).

  r + 2(2r - 1) + 2(2r - 2) + 15 = 0 i.e., 9r + 9 = 0 i.e., r = -1.

The coordinates of N are (-1, 2(-1)-1, 2(-1)-2)

i.e.,

Thus the centre and radius of the circle are (-1, -3, -4) and

Problem 19:

A sphere touches the plane x - 2y - 2z - 7 = 0 in the point (3, -1, -1)

and passes through the point (1, 1, -3). Find its equation.

3-D Analytical Geometry

9

Solution:

The equation of the point sphere with centre at (3, -1, -1) is (x - 3) 2 + (y + 1) 2 + (z + 1) 2 = 0

 i.e., x 2 + y 2 + z 2 - 6x + 2y + 2z + 11 = 0 (1) The required sphere touches the plane x - 2y - 2z - 7 = 0 at (3, -1, -1) (2)

It contains the point circle of intersection of sphere (1) and plane (2).

Hence the equation of the required sphere is of the form

x 2 + y 2 + z 2 - 6x + 2y + 2z + 11 + (x - 2y - 2z - 7) = 0 and passes through (1, 1, -3)

1 2 + 1 2 + (-3) 2 - 6.1 + 2.1 + 2(-3) + 11 + (1 - 2.1 - 2(-3) - 7) = 0. 12 + (-2) = 0 = 6

The required sphere is x 2 + y 2 + z 2 - 6x + 2y + 2z + 11 + 6(x - 2y - 2z - 7) = 0 x 2 + y 2 + z 2 - 10y - 10z - 31 = 0

i.e.,

Find the equation of the sphere that passes through the circle

x 2 + y 2 + z 2 + x - 3y + 2z - 1 = 0, 2x + 5y – z + 7 = 0 and cuts orthogonally the sphere whose equation x 2 + y 2 + z 2 - 3x + 5y - 7z - 6 = 0

Solution:

The equation of any sphere passing through the given circle is x 2 + y 2 + z 2 + x - 3y + 2z – 1 + (2x + 5y – z + 7) = 0

i.e.,

Sphere (1) cuts the sphere x 2 + y 2 + z 2 - 3x + 5y - 7z - 6 = 0 orthogonally.

x 2 + y 2 + z 2 + (1 + 2) x + (-3 + 5) y + (2 - ) z – 1 + 7= 0

Problem 23: The plane x/a + y/b + z/c = 1 meets the axes at A, B, C. Find the equation of the cone whose vertex is the origin and the guiding curve is the circle through A, B, C.

Solution: The plane x/a + y/b + z/c = 1

meets the axes at the points A(a, 0, 0), B(0, b, 0) and C(0, 0, c). The sphere OABC
