## 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 = Similarly the formula of distance in 3-d is ### 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 . = = AK=LM=OM – OL= x – x1
PT=MN=ON – OM= x2 – x
PK=MP – AL= y – y1
BT= BN – PM= y2 – y = = = Therefore = mx2 – mx = nx – nx1
mx + nx = mx2 + nx1
x(m + n) = mx2 + nx1
x = Similarly
y = in a 3-d graph the formula remains the same but the ‘x’ becomes z ..that is
z = ### 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= , D= , G = , G = , Similarly, in 3-d the third axis z comes in the formula
G = , , ### 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]

Area (ABC) =½[x1(y2 – y3) + x2(y3 – y1) + x3(y2 – y1)]

### 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 thepressurewas decreased inside the tube, a glow could be seen at the back side of the cathode.

### SETS, RELATIONS & FUNCTIONS

SETS, RELATIONS & FUNCTIONSSets are a fundamental part of mathematics and it’s knowledge is very important in present. It defines the concepts of relation and functions. These functions are also very essential for present day maths. SETSSets are denoted by capital letters. They are similar to matrices whose elements are denoted by small letters. But in sets an element comes only at once. Sets are matrices which give a sense of belonging. This sense of belongingness is represented by ∈ .We can write anything in a set like rivers of India, Wonders of the World .etc.  For an example let there be a set of positive single digit. Let the set be denoted as A Therefore, 8 ∈ A  Also we can write, 17 ∈ A Set can be represented by two types  ROSTERIn roster form we write elements in curly brackets and separate them with comma.  If there be set of positive integers less than 10. Therefore the set will be {1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9}  SET- BUILDER FORMIn set-builder form we take a variable x and then gives its…

### 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 .

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."

### Sectors of Indian Economy

Hey there all the tenthees.
You guys must be facing a lot of pressure as it is a board class as quoted by many teachers. You need to take care of each and every stuff including the small stats too.

But unfortunately most of the Economics books we got do not have the graph 3 for the chapter Sectors of Indian Economy.

No worries guys you came to the right place. We are providing you with the graph of December 2015 edition which is the latest graph which we need.
All the best for your board exams and here you go

Once again All the very best guys !!!

### 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 will be the brightest while th…
