Supplementary Exercise Q9 Show that if the vectors 𝑎 ⃗, 𝑏 ⃗ and 𝑐 ⃗ are co-planar, then 𝑎 ⃗ + 𝑏 ⃗, 𝑏 ⃗ + 𝑐 and 𝑐 ⃗ + 𝑎 ⃗ are also co-planar Vectors 𝑎 ⃗, 𝑏 ⃗, 𝑐 ⃗ are coplanar if [𝑎 ⃗" " 𝑏 ⃗" " 𝑐 ⃗ ] = 0 Finding [■8(𝑎 ⃗" + " 𝑏 ⃗&𝑏 ⃗+𝑐 ⃗&𝑐 ⃗+𝑎 ⃗ )] [■8(𝑎 ⃗" + " 𝑏 ⃗&𝑏 ⃗+𝑐 ⃗&𝑐 ⃗+𝑎 ⃗ )] = (𝑎 ⃗" + " 𝑏 ⃗). ["(" 𝑏 ⃗+𝑐 ⃗") " × " (" 𝑐 ⃗+𝑎 ⃗)] = (𝑎 ⃗" + " 𝑏 ⃗). ["(" 𝑏 ⃗×𝑐 ⃗") + (" 𝑏 ⃗×𝑎 ⃗)+"(" 𝒄 ⃗×𝒄 ⃗") + (" 𝑐 ⃗×𝑎 ⃗)] 𝑐 ⃗ × 𝑐 ⃗ = |𝑐 ⃗ ||𝑐 ⃗ | sin 0 𝑛 ̂ = 0 = "(" 𝑎 ⃗+𝑏 ⃗")." [(𝑏 ⃗×𝑐 ⃗") + (" 𝑏 ⃗×𝑎 ⃗ ) "+ 0 + (" 𝑐 ⃗" × " 𝑎 ⃗") " ] = 𝑎 ⃗. (𝑏 ⃗ × 𝑐 ⃗) + 𝑏 ⃗.(𝑏 ⃗ × 𝑐 ⃗) + 𝑎 ⃗. (𝑏 ⃗ × 𝑎 ⃗) + 𝑏 ⃗.(𝑏 ⃗ × 𝑎 ⃗) + 𝑎 ⃗.(𝑐 ⃗ × 𝑎 ⃗) + 𝑏 ⃗.(𝑐 ⃗ × 𝑎 ⃗) [𝑏 ⃗", " 𝑏 ⃗", " 𝑐 ⃗ ] = [𝑐 ⃗", " 𝑏 ⃗", " 𝑏 ⃗ ] = 𝑐 ⃗. (𝑏 ⃗ × 𝑏 ⃗) As (𝑏 ⃗ × 𝑏 ⃗) = 0 ⃗ = 𝑐 ⃗ . 0 ⃗ = 0 ⃗ Using Prop: [𝑏 ⃗", " 𝑏 ⃗", " 𝑐 ⃗ ] = 0 [𝑎 ⃗", " 𝑏 ⃗", " 𝑎 ⃗ ] = 0 [𝑏 ⃗", " 𝑏 ⃗", " 𝑎 ⃗ ] = 0 [𝑎 ⃗", " 𝑐 ⃗", " 𝑎 ⃗ ] = 0 = [𝑎 ⃗", " 𝑏 ⃗", " 𝑐 ⃗ ] + [𝒃 ⃗", " 𝒃 ⃗", " 𝒄 ⃗ ] + [𝒂 ⃗", " 𝒃 ⃗", " 𝒂 ⃗ ] + [𝒃 ⃗", " 𝒃 ⃗", " 𝒂 ⃗ ] + [𝒂 ⃗", " 𝒄 ⃗", " 𝒂 ⃗ ] + [𝑏 ⃗", " 𝑐 ⃗", " 𝑎 ⃗ ] = [𝑎 ⃗", " 𝑏 ⃗", " 𝑐 ⃗ ] + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + [𝑏 ⃗", " 𝑐 ⃗", " 𝑎 ⃗ ] = [𝑎 ⃗", " 𝑏 ⃗", " 𝑐 ⃗ ] + [𝒃 ⃗", " 𝒄 ⃗", " 𝒂 ⃗ ] As [𝑎 ⃗", " 𝑏 ⃗", " 𝑐 ⃗ ] = [𝑐 ⃗", " 𝑎 ⃗", " 𝑏 ⃗ ]= [𝑏 ⃗", " 𝑐 ⃗", " 𝑎 ⃗ ] = [𝑎 ⃗", " 𝑏 ⃗", " 𝑐 ⃗ ] + [𝒂 ⃗", " 𝒃 ⃗", " 𝒄 ⃗ ] = 2[𝑎 ⃗", " 𝑏 ⃗", " 𝑐 ⃗ ] = 2 × 0 = 0 Since [■8(𝑎 ⃗" + " 𝑏 ⃗&𝑏 ⃗+𝑐 ⃗&𝑐 ⃗+𝑎 ⃗ )] = 0 𝑎 ⃗ + 𝑏 ⃗, 𝑏 ⃗ + 𝑐 and 𝑐 ⃗ + 𝑎 ⃗ are also co-planar Hence proved
