VECTORS II
1 Vector Product
The vector product can be seen in 3 different forms, used for different types of questions.
(1) Mathematical calculation of vector product:
Vector (cross) product


a1
a2
a3

 ×


b1
b2
b3

 =


a2b3 − a3b2
−(a1b3 − a3b1)
a1b2 − a2b1


(2) 3D picture of vector product:
a
b
n
Π
Let Π be the plane that a and b lies. The cross product of a and b produces a vector n that is
perpendicular to Π. A vector that is perpendicular to a plane is also called a normal vector to
the plane.
(3) Vector product in terms of sine:
a × b = (|a||b| sin θ)ˆn
|a × b| = |a||b| sin θ
where θ is the angle between the 2 vectors.
Example 1.
Let a = 2i + j − 3k and b = −i + 2j + 3k, find the vectors a × b and b × a. What is the relationship
between a × b and b × a?

Π : r · n = d
ℓ
Recall that if two vectors a and b are perpendicular, then
a · b = 0.
Let m be a direction vector for the line ℓ and n be a normal for the plane Π.
m is parallel to the plane Π
⇔ m is perpendicular to n
⇔ m · n = 0
3 different ways to check if ℓ lies on Π
Let the equations of the line ℓ and plane Π be given by
ℓ : r = a + λm, λ ∈ R and Π : r · n = d.
(1) Check if ℓ and Π are parallel. If they are, then
m · n = 0.
If we have checked that the above holds, to check if ℓ lies in the plane Π, check that
(Any point on ℓ) ·n = d
(2) If (a + λm) · n = d, then line lies in plane.
(3) Show that 2 points on ℓ lie on Π.
What about the case where ℓ does not lie on Π?

Method 1: Cross the 2 normals
Finding line of intersection between 2 planes
The direction vector, m, of the line of intersection between Π1 and Π2 is given by
m = n1 × n2,
where n1, n2 are the normal vectors of Π1 and Π2 respectively.
We will use a GC if there are no unknowns in n1 and n2.
Method 2: Using GC
Example 9.
The equations of two planes p1, p2 are
2x − 4y + z = 6
x + y − 2z = 6
respectively. The planes p1 and p2 meet in a line l. Find a vector equation of l.

If 2 planes, p1 and p2 are perpendicular, then the following occurs:
(a) n1 is parallel to p2 =⇒ p2 contains the direction vector n1,
(b) n2 is parallel to p1 =⇒ p1 contains the direction vector n2.
Example 10 (2012/RVHS/Prelim/I/10modified).
The equations of two planes p1 and p2 are
2y − z = 0,
2x + z = 2.
Find the equation of the plane p3 that passes through the point (1, 1, 1) and is perpendicular to both
p1 and p2.
Solution: p1

p1

p3 is perpendicular to p1 =⇒ p3 is parallel to n1.
p3 is perpendicular to p2 =⇒ p3 is parallel to n2.
∴ p3 is parallel to both n1 and n2.

2 direction vectors of the reflected plane
Suppose we want to find the reflection of plane π1 in π2. Lets call it π′
1.
We also know that π1 and π2 intersect at the line l.
1) l will also lie on the reflected plane π′
1. Hence π′
1 also contains direction vector of l.
2) Take a point P from π1 and reflect it in π2. This reflected point P′ will be on π′
1.
Now take a point A from l (which is also on π′
1). π′
1 will contain direction vector

Distance from origin to plane
If r · ˆn = d, then distance from origin to plane = |d|.
Proof: (Optional)
O
A
n
Π : r · ˆn = d
θ
|a · ˆn|
Let A be a point on Π such that its position vector is a. Then,
length of projection of
−→
OA onto n = |a · ˆn|.
In addition, since A lies on Π, we also have
a · ˆn = d.
Hence,
length of projection of
−→
OA onto n = |a · ˆn| = |d|.

Vectors2

  • 1. VECTORS II 1 Vector Product The vector product can be seen in 3 different forms, used for different types of questions. (1) Mathematical calculation of vector product: Vector (cross) product   a1 a2 a3   ×   b1 b2 b3   =   a2b3 − a3b2 −(a1b3 − a3b1) a1b2 − a2b1   (2) 3D picture of vector product: a b n Π Let Π be the plane that a and b lies. The cross product of a and b produces a vector n that is perpendicular to Π. A vector that is perpendicular to a plane is also called a normal vector to the plane. (3) Vector product in terms of sine: a × b = (|a||b| sin θ)ˆn |a × b| = |a||b| sin θ where θ is the angle between the 2 vectors. Example 1. Let a = 2i + j − 3k and b = −i + 2j + 3k, find the vectors a × b and b × a. What is the relationship between a × b and b × a? www.MathAcademy.sg 1 © 2017 Math Academy
  • 2. 2 Equation of Planes m1 m2 n Π A A plane Π is defined by a point A which it passes through, and two direction vectors m1 and m2 that lies on the plane. Parametric form or Vector form r = −→ OA + λm1 + µm2, λ, µ ∈ R where m1, m2 are parallel to the plane and A is a point on the plane. Scalar-Product form Let r, a be points on the plane, n be a normal vector to the plane. Then, r · n = a · n where n = m1 × m2. Proof: For any position vector −−→ OR on the plane, since −→ AR is perpendicular to n, −→ AR · n = 0 (−−→ OR − −→ OA ) · n = 0 −−→ OR · n − −→ OA · n = 0 −−→ OR · n = −→ OA · n Cartesian Form We must first have the equation in scalar-product form. r · n = D r ·   a b c   = D   x y z   ·   a b c   = D ax + by + cz = D (Cartesian form) www.MathAcademy.sg 2 © 2017 Math Academy
  • 3. Example 2. t (a) Find the equation of the following, in parametric, scalar-product and cartesian form. Plane Π which passes through the point (1, 0, 2) and is parallel to the vectors   1 0 1   and   0 1 0  . Solution: Parametric: r =   1 0 2   + λ   1 0 1   + µ   0 1 0   , λ, µ ∈ R. Scalar-Product:   1 0 1   ×   0 1 0   =   −1 0 1   r · n = a · n r ·   −1 0 1   =   1 0 2   ·   −1 0 1   r ·   −1 0 1   = −1 + 2 = 1 r ·   −1 0 1   = 1 Cartesian:   x y z   ·   −1 0 1   = 1 −x + z = 1 *Note that the following equations refer to the same plane. r ·   −1 0 1   = 1 r ·   1 0 −1   = −1 r ·   −2 0 2   = 2 www.MathAcademy.sg 3 © 2017 Math Academy
  • 4. (b) The plane Π contains the point A(2, 2, −2) and the line r =   1 3 −3   + λ   −2 0 1   , λ ∈ R. Find the equation of Π1 in scalar product form.

Note: If d1 and d2 are of the same signs, then the planes Π1 and Π2 lie on the same side of the origin. If d1 and d2 are of opposite signs, then the planes Π1 and Π2 lie on different sides of the origin. Example 16.
