Scalar Triple Product Exercise Fill In The Blanks Question 7

Answer: $\pm 12$
HINT :- Simplify the given value.
Given: Volume of parallelopiped =6 cubic units
Solution:
We need to find,
$\left \lceil \overrightarrow{a}+\overrightarrow{b}\overrightarrow{b}+\overrightarrow{c}\overrightarrow{c}+\overrightarrow{a} \right \rceil$$=\left ( \overrightarrow{a}+\overrightarrow{b} \right ).\left \lceil \left ( \overrightarrow{b}+\overrightarrow{c} \right )\times \left ( \overrightarrow{c}+\overrightarrow{a} \right )\right \rceil$

(using scalar triple product)

$=(\vec{a}+\vec{b}) \cdot[(\vec{b} \times \vec{c})+(\vec{b} \times \vec{a})+(\vec{c} \times \vec{c})+(\vec{c} \times \vec{a})]$

$=(\vec{a}+\vec{b}) \cdot[(\vec{b} \times \vec{c})+(\vec{b} \times \vec{a})+0+(\vec{c} \times \vec{a})]$

$=\vec{a} \cdot(\vec{b} \times \vec{c})+\vec{a} \cdot(\vec{b} \times \vec{a})+\vec{a} \cdot\left(\vec{c} \times\overrightarrow{a}\right)$

$+\vec{b} \cdot(\vec{b} \times \vec{c})+\vec{b} \cdot(\vec{b} \times \vec{a})+\vec{b} \cdot\left(\vec{c} \times\overrightarrow{a}\right)$

we Know $\overrightarrow{a}.\left ( \overrightarrow{b}\times \overrightarrow{a} \right )=0$

$=\left \lceil \overrightarrow{a}\overrightarrow{b}\overrightarrow{c} \right \rceil+0+0+0+0+\left \lceil \overrightarrow{a}\overrightarrow{b}\overrightarrow{c} \right \rceil$

$=2\left \lceil \overrightarrow{a}\overrightarrow{b}\overrightarrow{c} \right \rceil$

Now, value of volume of parallelopiped =6

$=\pm \left \lceil \overrightarrow{a}\overrightarrow{b}\overrightarrow{c} \right \rceil=6$

Substituting values we get

$=\pm 2\left ( 6 \right )$

$=\pm 12$

Scalar Triple Product Exercise Fill In The Blanks Question 8

HINT : Use formula of $\left \lceil \overrightarrow{a}\overrightarrow{b}\overrightarrow{c} \right \rceil$ & then simplify it.
Given: Volume of parallel piped = 8 Sq. units.
$\therefore \left \lceil \overrightarrow{a}\overrightarrow{b}\overrightarrow{c} \right \rceil=8$ Sq.Units
Solution:

Now, For values
$\left \lceil \overrightarrow{3a}\hspace{0.2cm}\overrightarrow{4b}\hspace{0.2cm}\overrightarrow{5c} \right \rceil=\pm 3\times 4\times 5 \left \lceil \overrightarrow{a}\overrightarrow{b}\overrightarrow{c} \right \rceil$
$=\pm 480$

Scalar Triple Product Exercise Fill In The Blanks Question 9

HINT :- Use formula of volume of parallelepiped $=\left [ \overrightarrow{a}\: \overrightarrow{b}\: \overrightarrow{c} \right ]$
$\overrightarrow{a}-\overrightarrow{b}\overrightarrow{b}-\overrightarrow{c}$ & $\overrightarrow{c}-\overrightarrow{a}$,where $\overrightarrow{a},\overrightarrow{b}$&$\overrightarrow{c}$are adjacent edges.
Solution:
∴ volume of parallelopied
$=[\vec{a}-\vec{b}\hspace{0.2cm}\vec{b}-\vec{c}\hspace{0.2cm} \vec{c}-\vec{a}]$
$=(\vec{a}-\vec{b}) \cdot\left[(\vec{b}-\vec{c}) \times\left(\vec{c}-\vec{a}\right)\right]$
$=(\vec{a}-\vec{b}) \cdot\left[(\vec{b}\times \vec{c}) -\left(\vec{b}\times \vec{a}\right)-\left ( \vec{c}\times \vec{c} \right )=\left ( \vec{c}\times \vec{a} \right )\right]$
$=\left[\vec{a}.(\vec{b}\times \vec{c}) -\vec{a}.\left(\vec{b}\times \vec{a}\right)+\vec{a}.\left ( \vec{c}\times \vec{a} \right )-\vec{b}.\left ( \vec{b}\times \vec{c} \right )+\vec{b}.\left ( \vec{b}\times \vec{a} \right )-\vec{b}.\left ( \vec{c\times \vec{a}} \right )\right]$

$\left ( \therefore \vec{a}.\left ( \vec{b}\times \vec{c} \right )=\vec{b}.\left ( \vec{c}\times \vec{a} \right )=\left [ \vec{a}\vec{b}\vec{c} \right ] \right )$
$=0$

Scalar Triple Product Exercise Fill In The Blank Question 10

HINT :-We know that for adjacent edges , $\overrightarrow{a}\overrightarrow{b}$&$\overrightarrow{c}$
Volume of parallelopiped $=\left [ \overrightarrow{a}\overrightarrow{b}\overrightarrow{c} \right ]$$=\left ( \overrightarrow{a}\times \overrightarrow{b} \right ).\overrightarrow{c}$

Given:

Volume of parallelepiped, $\left [ \overrightarrow{a}\overrightarrow{b}\overrightarrow{c} \right ]=24$

And $=\left (\overrightarrow{a}\times \overrightarrow{b} \right )=6$

Solution:

Now , we have values of volume of parallelopiped

$=\left (\overrightarrow{a}\times \overrightarrow{b} \right ).\vec{c}=24$

$6\overrightarrow{c}=24$

$\therefore \overrightarrow{c}=4$

Where ,$\overrightarrow{c}$represents the height of the parallelopiped

Scalar Triple Product Exercise Fill In The Blank Question 11

HINT :- When the vectors are is same plane, they are coplanar & their scalar triple product is zero.
Given:
$\overrightarrow{r}.\overrightarrow{a}=0$ $\overrightarrow{r}.\overrightarrow{b}=0$ &$\overrightarrow{r}.\overrightarrow{c}=0$, for some non- zero vector $\overrightarrow{r},$
Solution:
As $\overrightarrow{r}.\overrightarrow{a}=0$
then either $\overrightarrow{a}$ is zero or if their dot product is zero, then, $\overrightarrow{r}$ is a vector perpendicular to all.
Thus, as all lie on same planes $\vec{a} \cdot\left(\vec{b} \times \vec{c}\right)=[\vec{a}\hspace{0.2cm} \vec{b} \hspace{0.2cm}\vec{c}]$
= 0

RD Sharma Chapter wise Solutions

1. What is a scalar triple product?

The scalar triple product is simply defined as the dot product of any one of the given vectors with the cross product of the other two vectors. This is also called mixed product, triple scalar product, and box product.

2. What is the formula of the triple vector product?

The formula for triple vector product is:

A x (b x c) = (a . c) b – (b . c)a

3. What is the scalar product of two vectors?

It is said to be an algebraic operation that takes two equal-length sequences of numbers and returns a single number when the dot product and the scalar product is mixed.

4. What does the vector triple product represent?

The scalar triple product formula represents the parallelepiped volume whose three coterminous edges represent the three vectors a, b and c.

5. What is a scalar triple product used for?

The value of the vector triple product can be found by the product of a vector with the cross product of the other two vectors. Vector triple product arises in the discussion of rotational motion, and generally, it is used to simplify the different vector formulas.
