Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so i know how to do the equation, but how do i do the intersection?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the description of the intersection is an equation of a circle i believe based on the example prior to this problem

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you know the distance you are from the plane; you know the Radius of the sphere, so we can calculate the radius of the circle in the plane

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the plane you pick is just dropping that variable from the picture to get your center in that plane: (1,2,3) centers in nox plane at (2,3) the noy plane at (1,3) and the noz plane at (1,2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the distance away from the plane is the one that you dropped :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay so the xy plane would be (x2)^2 + *y+6)^2 = 9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(2,6,4) and radius 5 xy: noz: center at (2,6) with a distance of 4 radius in noz = sqrt(5^24^2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yz: nox plane; centers on (y,z) with a radius of: sqrt(5^2  x^2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and r^2 = 21 then in your equation of circle stuff

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but how would i do xz?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well, it centers in the noy so (x,z); its radius is then sqrt(5^2y^2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it is isnt it :) tell me; if your stretching to reach 5 and your 6 away, do you hit it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh so it never intersects?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1its negative meaning there is no real radius in that plane so we aint even touching it

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so there wouldn't be an equation for xz

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1correct; the xz plane has no intersection with the sphere
