2-D & 3-D GEOMETRY

2-D & 3-D GEOMETRY

We all have some amount of geometry. We know that any line can be represented on the Cartesian plane. Any figure can be drawn on it. But can we represent a 3-d object on it. Yes we can. A Cartesian plane has 2 axis. While representing in 3-D we need to add a third axis. This axis does not come in between the axis or in the same plane. It appears to be coming out of the paper as we cannot represent a 3-d object on a 2-d surface.


This new z-axis represents a line coming out of the screen. Before understanding 3-d geometry you need to imagine this axis coming out of the screen. 

REMEMBER: all the three axis are perpendicular .i.e there an angle 0f 90 between them and they meet at the origin
If you are unable to imagine you can take a thick book as an example. Any corner becomes it origin and the three edges as the three axis

REPRESENTING 3-D GEOMETRY

Like in 2-d geometry we represent the value of the different axis as (x,y) we use the same method to write in 3-d geometry. (x,y,z). You can imagine that more the value of z the more it will come out of the paper.

SIGN CONVENTIONS IN GEOMETRY

In 2-d geometry we have 4 quadrants or the x-axis and the y-axis divide the plane into 4 parts. In each part different quadrants have different conventions. They are in the following way



In 3-d geometry we have octants that is we have 8 parts. Dividing a cube from the  center to form 8 parts.


We take xy-plane as the surface and z-axis as the height. Remember you need to imagine the above diagram as 3-d
Sign conventions are as following 
1 octant – (X,Y,Z) 
2 octant – (-X,Y,Z)
3 octant – (-X,-Y,Z)
4 octant – (X,-Y,Z)
5 octant – (X,Y,-Z)
6 octant – (-X,Y,-Z)
7 octant – (-X,-Y,-Z)
8 octant – (X,-Y,-Z)

LOCATING A POINT

While locating a point in xy-plane we measure the distances from the axis. The distance away from the y-axis is our x-coordinate and distance from x-axis becomes our y-coordinate. 
   


In 3-d geometry the same method follows but with height. In the below diagram it seems that the distance from x axis is not perpendicular but it is. As I told earlier we cannot exactly show 3-d we can only give 3-d effects 


DISTANCE BETWEEN TWO POINTS

  Let there be two points A and B. they are plotted in a xy-plane then how do we calculate their distance. We use Pythagoras theorem to find the formula. 

Now ,
OL= x1, OM = x2, AL = y1, BM = y2
Therefore 
AC=LM=OM-OL= x2 - x1
BC=BM-BC=BM-AL=y2-y1
Since ABC is a right-triangle then 
AB2 = AC2 + BC2
AB = equation.pdf
Similarly the formula of distance in 3-d is
 equation_1.pdf

SECTION FORMULA 

Let there be line AB. A point P divides the line in the ratio m: n. If coordinates of the two points (A and B) then what will be the coordinates of the P. To find this we use the below section formula . 


equation_2.pdf=equation_3.pdf=equation_4.pdf 
AK=LM=OM – OL= x – x1
PT=MN=ON – OM= x2 – x 
PK=MP – AL= y – y1
BT= BN – PM= y2 – y
equation_5.pdf=equation_6.pdf=equation_7.pdf=equation_8.pdf
Therefore
equation_9.pdf=equation_10.pdf
mx2 – mx = nx – nx1
mx + nx = mx2 + nx1
x(m + n) = mx2 + nx1
x = equation_11.pdf
Similarly
y = equation_12.pdf 
in a 3-d graph the formula remains the same but the ‘x’ becomes z ..that is
z = equation_13.pdf 

CENTROID OF A TRIANGLE

Let there be a triangle with vertices A, B, and C. let AD be the median of the triangle and let the centroid be G. We know that centroid divides the median in the ratio 2: 1. Also D divides the line BC in the ratio 1: 1.

D=equation_14.pdf,equation_15.pdf
D=equation_16.pdf,equation_17.pdf
G =equation_18.pdf,equation_19.pdf
G =equation_20.pdf,equation_21.pdf
Similarly, in 3-d the third axis z comes in the formula
G =equation_22.pdf,equation_23.pdf,equation_24.pdf

AREA OF TRIANGLE

Let there be a triangle ABC. Coordinates of all the vertices are given. So how we can find its area. We can do so by using the formula of trapezium .i.e
Area of trapezium=1/2(sum of parallel sides) X (distance between them)



Now area of ABC will be:-
Area (ABC) = Area (ABLM) + Area (ACNM) – Area (BCNL)
Area (ABC) = ½ [(BL + AM) (LM) + (AM + CN)(MN) – (BL + CN)(LN)
Area (ABC) = ½ [(y2 + y1)(x1 - x2) + (y1 + y3)(x3 – x1) - (y2 + y3)(x3 - x2) ]
Area (ABC) =½ [y2 x1 - y2 x2 + y1 x1 – y1 x2 + y1 x3 y1 x1 + y3 x3 – y3 x1 - y2 x3 + y2 x2 - y3 x3 + y3 x2]

Anode Ray Experiment

→Anode ray experiment was conducted by E Goldstein. →These rays are also known as canal rays. →This experiment helped in the discovery of the proton. Apparatus Used A discharge tube  was taken in which there were 2 electrodes i.e. Anode(+ve) and the cathode (-ve). The tube was filled with an inert gas. A perforated or porous cathode was used. A layer of zinc sulphide was placed at the back of the cathode. There was a vacuum pump in the tube. High voltage (5000v-10000v) was allowed to flow through the system. It was observed that when the gas was at 1atm(atmospheric pressure ) no change was seen in the tube.  When the   pressure   was decreased inside the tube, a glow could be seen at the back side of the cathode.

Cathode Ray Experiment

This experiment was conducted by J.J. Thomson (Sir Joseph John Thomson) in the year 1897. This experiment proved that atom is made up of fundamental particles which are much smaller than the smallest atom 'hydrogen' This experiment helped to discover electron. According to J.J. Thomson, the cathode rays consisted of very light, small and negatively charged particles. He named the particles "corpuscles" which were later known as electrons

Rutherford Alpha Ray Scattering Experiment

Rutherford Alpha Ray Scattering Experiment Hey, Guys, most of you might have heard about the alpha ray scattering experiment and if you want to know in detail about Rutherford's model and the experiment he conducted, this is the right place for you... But first: Things You Must Know Some basic information that will help you understand rutherford experiment properly: Proton is a sub-atomic particle which is positively charged and has a mass of 1u. Alpha particles are helium atom with a charge of +2 as they have lost 2 electrons. Alpha particles have an atomic mass  of 4u. Gold is highly malleable and can be beaten into very thin sheets. Experiment Rutherford conducted his experiment in the following way: Rutherford took a very thin gold foil and bombarded it with high energy alpha particles. He placed a layer of zinc sulphide on the walls where the experiment was taking place because when alpha particles strike zinc sulphide layer, it results i

Isotopes, Isobars and Isotones

Isotopes These are elements which have the same atomic number but different atomic mass . They have the same atomic number because the number of protons that are inside their nuclei remains the same. But, they have different atomic mass because the number of neutrons that are also inside their nuclei is different. As the number of protons inside nuclei remains same, therefore the overall charge of the elements also remains same as in isotopes: no of protons = no of electrons . Hence, as isotopes overall charge remains neutral, therefore their chemical properties will also remain identical.   Therefore, Isotopes are chemically same but physically different.

Android Versions Named After Sweet

Have you ever thought why are Android versions always named after sweet names ?? Everytime a new Android version is launched its name is kept after a sweet name. Many people have researched about this topic and many have asked Google also. Have you ever tried to find out the core reason behind this? If not then you would find the answer here . First of all let us first see what Google says about this : In 2008 i.e. the year when Android was launched a reporter asked the reason for the same. At that time Google said “It’s kind of like an internal team thing, and we prefer to be a little bit — how should I say — a bit inscrutable in the matter, I’ll say,” said Randall Sarafa, a Google spokesman. “The obvious thing is that, yeah, the Android platform releases, they go by dessert names and by alphabetical order for the most part."

Lets talk STARS

Hey guys, have you ever spent any of your nights at the uncovered top floor or backyard of your house. If you have then this article will help know about all the things, you just observed out there in the space or even if you did not have this article will help you observe and understand all the miracles that happen in that huge space above us. In this one, we will talk about STARS- STARS There are about 6k-10k stars that a person with a normal eyesight can observe in that huge space.(well that number varies according to your eyesight) You might have observed or will observe that the stars in the space are not all the same in brightness and color. Well, the brightness of a star depends on the combination of 2 reasons.   The ACTUAL BRIGHTNESS -   Actual brightness of a star refers to the magnitude of real brightness that, that particular star have.You can think of that as energy.Different stars have different levels of energy(brightness).The star with more energy w

Paid Apps For Free ??

Everyone wants to play a game like GTA on iPad, it is easy on a computer to download such games but difficult on smart devices like iPad, tablet,  or smartphones. We can buy them but not everyone can buy games. But no worries guys there is a solution to this problem where one can have fun of playing games without spending their precious money .(underlined apps have downloading links  given at the end) iOS There many apps through which you can download these paid games for free. Also, there are many sites for the same. One of the most helpful apps is a Chinese app.It is called haimawan. If on a ios device, then you just have to click install which will redirect to settings  add a profile  and boom enjoy it as you wish . but it does not always work, it might work for few days and then the verification problem which may not cure. One more app is tutu which is a fantastic app and always work (99.9% sure .. nothing is perfect). X cross was the perfect app but is closed now an
