Find the distance D. The distance D = 2 2 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 ( ) ( ) ( ) x x y y z z + + Important equations in 3D to remember: 1. ax by cz d + + = represents a plane 2. x a = is a surface parallel to yzplane 3. y b = is a surface parallel to zxplane 4. z c = is a surface parallel to xyplane 5. y x = is a vertical plane that intersects xyplane in the line y x = 6. 2 2 2 2 ( ) ( ) ( ) x a y b z c d + + = is a sphere center at ( , , ) a b c and radius d 7. 2 2 2 2 ( ) ( ) ( ) x a y b z c d + + = , z c ≥ is a hemisphere center at ( , , ) a b c Examples: 1. Find the equation of a sphere center at (1,2, 1) and radius 1. Solution: 2 2 2 ( 1) ( 2) ( 1) 1 x y z + + + = 2.

Like in a) you can show the points are not on the same line. 3. Find the center and radius of the sphere given by 2 2 2 6 4 2 11 x y z x y z + + + = Solution: Complete the square as 2 2 2 2 ( 3) ( 2) ( 1) 5 x y z + + + = and then center is at (3, 2,1) and radius 5. 4.
