How would you fint the vector equation of a plane given only the scalar equation?
Heres an example: Find the vector eqn. of 2x - y + 3z - 24 = 0
By a strange coincidence, this thread is particularly relevant: http://www.mathhelpforum.com/math-he...-equation.html
you said that one of the methods would be to find the two other direction vectors...
to find a direction vector you would need a point, do we pick any x and y value solve for z and thats a point.. (a, b, c) then direction vector is (x-a, y-b, c-z).
then use dot produt to solve for x, y z?
then do the same thing agian?
and its probably not a coincidence.. we may have been useing the same text book... it is after all, a small world
