(a) Find an equation for the plane through A (0 , , 1) , B (2 , , 0) , and C (0 , 3 , 0). (b) Find the cosine of the angle between this plane and xy-plane. (c) Find the area of the triangle ABC. Solution: (a) We find a vector normal to the plane and use it with one of the points (it doesn’t matter which) to write an equation for the plane.-→ AB = < 2- ,- ,- 1 > = < 2 , ,- 1 >-→ AC = <- , 3- ,- 1 > = < , 3 ,- 1 > The cross product-→ AB ×-→ AC = ~ i ~ j ~ k 2 0- 1 0 3- 1 = 3 ~ i + 2 ~ j + 6 ~ k is normal to the plane. By using components of this vector and coordinates of the point (0,0,1) we can write the equation of the plane as 3( x- 0) + 2( y- 0) + 6( z- 1) = 0 3 x + 3 y + 6 z = 6 (b) The angle between two intersecting planes is defined to be the (acute) angle determined by their normal vectors....
