Unformatted text preview: R n be the vertices of a regular tetrahedron, i.e., the distances || p i-p j || for i 6 = j are all equal. Let q be the center of mass of the face with vertices p 1 ,p 2 ,p 3 . Compute the cosine of the angle at p 4 made by the vectors q-p 4 and p 1-p 4 . [Hint: the answer does not depend on the coordinates of p 1 , ..., p 4 , as long as the distances between any two of them are the same. Pick nice coordinates!] 1...
