Let us ﬁrst consider a line through a given point (x0 , y0 , z0 ) in the direction of a known vector v = ai + bj + ck. If r(x, y, z) is any other point on the line, the vector r − r0 is parallel to v. 41) where t is any real number. This equation is called the parametric form of a straight line. It is inﬁnitely long and ﬁxed in space, as shown in Fig. 17. It cannot be moved parallel to itself as a free vector. 42) represents three equations (x − x0 ) = ta, (y − y0 ) = tb, (z − z0 ) = tc. 43) 24 1 Vectors z (x0, y0, z0) r − r0 (x, y, z) r0 r r = r0 + t V y V x Fig.

Thus, 4 rp = r1 − dn = i + 2j + 3k − √ 38 3 2 5 √ i− √ j+ √ k . 9 + 4 + 25 38 38 Hence, the coordinates of the foot of the perpendicular are 26 84 94 38 , 38 , 38 . 6. A plane intersects the x, y, and z axes, respectively, at (a, 0, 0) , (0, b, 0) , and (0, 0, c) (Fig. 19). Find (a) a unit normal to this plane, (b) the perpendicular distance between the origin and this plane, (c) the equation for this plane. z (0,0,c) n (0,b,0) y (a,0,0) x Fig. 19. 6. Let r1 = ai, r2 = bj, r3 = ck. The vector from (a, 0, 0) to (0, b, 0) is r2 − r1 = bj − ai, and the vector from (a, 0, 0) to (0, 0, c) is r3 − r1 = ck − ai.

57) are the famous Frenet–Serret formulas. They are fundamental equations in diﬀerential geometry. 1. Find the arc length s of the curve r (t) = a cos ti + a sin tj between t = 0 and t = T. Express r as a function of s. 1. Since ds/dt = v and v = (v · v)1/2 = (r · r)1/2 , ds = v dt = (r · r)1/2 dt. This seemingly trivial formula is actually very useful in a variety of problems. In the present case ds = [(−a sin ti + a cos tj) · (−a sin ti + a cos tj)]1/2 dt = a dt, T a dt = aT. s= 0 In general s = at and t = s/a, thus s s r (s) = a cos i + a sin j.
