I. Very short answer type questions :

2. Each question carries two marks.

Question 1.
Find the value of x, if the slope of the line passing through (2, 5) and (x, 3) is 2.
Solution:
Given the Slope of the line passing through (2, 5) and (x, 3) is 2
⇒ $$\frac{3-5}{x-2}$$ = 2
⇒ -2 = 2x – 4
⇒ 2x = 2
⇒ x = 1

Question 2.
Transform the equation x + y + 1 =0 into normal form.
Solution:
Given x + y + 1 = 0
⇒ x + y = -1
⇒ -x – y = 1
⇒ $$\frac{-x-y}{\sqrt{2}}$$ = $$\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}$$
⇒ $$x\left(\frac{-1}{\sqrt{2}}\right)+y\left(\frac{-1}{\sqrt{2}}\right)$$ = $$\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}$$
⇒ x cos $$\frac{5 \pi}{4}$$ + y sin $$\frac{5 \pi}{4}$$ = $$\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}$$ which is the required normal form.

Question 3.
Find the ratio in which the xz-plane divides the line joining A(-2, 3, 4) and B(1, 2, 3).
Solution:
Given A = (-2, 3, 4)
B = (1, 2, 3)
The XZ – Plane divides the line joining AB in the ratio
= -y1 : y2 = -3 : 2 = 3 : 2 externally.

Question 4.
Find the intercepts of the plane 4x + 3y – 2z + 2 = 0 on the Co-ordinate axes.
Solution:
Given plane equation is 4x + 3y – 2z + 2 = 0
⇒ 4x + 3y – 2z = – 2
⇒ $$\frac{4 x}{-2}+\frac{3 y}{-2}-\frac{2 z}{-2}$$ = 1
⇒ $$\frac{x}{\frac{-1}{2}}+\frac{y}{\frac{-2}{3}}+\frac{z}{1}$$ = 1
∴ X – intercept = $$\frac{-1}{2}$$
Y – intercept = $$\frac{-2}{3}$$
Z- intercept = 1.

Question 5.
Compute $$\lim _{x \rightarrow 0}\left(\frac{\sin a x}{\sin b x}\right)$$|, b ≠ 0, a ≠ b.
Solution:

Question 6.
Compute $$\lim _{x \rightarrow \pi / 2}\left(\frac{\cos x}{x-\pi / 2}\right)$$
Solution:

Question 7.
If y = $$\frac{a-x}{a+x}$$(x ≠ -a), find $$\frac{d y}{d x}$$.
Solution:
Given y = $$\frac{a-x}{a+x}$$
differentiating w.r.to ‘x’ on both sides, we have

Question 8.
If y = (cot-1 x3)2, find $$\frac{d y}{d x}$$.
Solution:
Given y = (cot-1 x3)2
differentiate w.r.to ‘x’ on both sides, we have

Question 9.
If the increase in the side of a square is 2%, then find the approximate percentage of increase in its areas.
Solution:
Let x, A be the side and area of a square respectively.
Given $$\frac{\Delta x}{x}$$ × 100 = 2
A = x2
∆A = 2x ∆x
$$\frac{\Delta \mathrm{A}}{\mathrm{A}}$$ × 100 = $$\frac{2 x \Delta x}{x^2}$$ × 100
= 2$$\frac{\Delta x}{x}$$ × 100
∴ The approximate increase in the area is 4%.

Question 10.
Find the value of C in Lagrange’s mean value theorem for the function f(x) = x2 – 1 on [2, 3].
Solution:
Let f(x) = x2 – 1
Since f is a second degree polynomial
∴ f is continuous on [2, 3] and
f is derivable on (2, 3)
∴ f satisfies all the conditions of
Lagrange’s mean value theorem
∴ There c ∈ (2, 3) such that
f'(c) = $$\frac{f(3)-f(2)}{3-2}$$
⇒ f(c) = f(3) – f(2) ……. (1)
f(x) = x2 – 1 ⇒ f'(x) = 2x
⇒ f'(c) = 2c
f(3) = 32 – 1 = 9 – 1 = 8
f(2) = 22 – 1 = 4 – 1 = 3
From (1)
2c = 8 – 3
⇒ 2c = 5
⇒ c = 5/2 ∈ (2, 3)

II. Short Answer Type Questions :

1. Attempt any Five questions.
2. Each question carries four marks.

Question 11.
Find the locus of the third vertex of a right angled triangle, the ends of whose hypotenuse are (4, 0) and (0, 4).
Solution:
Let A = (4, 0)
B = (0, 4)
Let p(x1, y1) be any point on the focus.

From fig
⇒ PA2 + PB2 + AB2
⇒ (x1 – 4)2 + (y1 – 0)2 + (x1 – 0)2 + (y1 – 4)2
= (4 – 0)2 + (0 – 4)2
⇒ $$x_1^2$$ – 8x1 + 16 + $$y_1^2$$ + $$x_1^2$$ + $$y_1^2$$ – 8y1 + 16 = 16 + 16
⇒ $$2 x_1^2$$ + $$2 y_1^2$$ – 8x1 – 8y1 = 0
⇒ $$x_1^2$$ + $$y_1^2$$ – 4x1 – 4y1 = 0
The focus of P is x2 + y2 – 4x – 4y = 0.

Question 12.
When the axes are rotated through an angle $$\frac{\pi}{6}$$, find the transformed equation of x2 + 2$$\sqrt{3}$$xy – y2 = 2a2.
Solution:

Question 13.
Find the value of k, if the liens 2x – 3y + k = 0, 3x – 4y – 13 = 0 and 8x – 11y – 33 = 0 are concurrent.
Solution:
Given line equations are
2x – 3y + k = 0 ……. (1)
3x – 4y – 13 = 0 …….. (2)
8x – 11y – 33 = 0 …… (3)
solving (2) and (1)

The point of intersection of (2) and (3) is (11, 5)
Since (1), (2), (3) are concurrent
∴ The point (11, 5) lies on (1)
∴ 2(11) – 3(5) + k = 0
⇒ 22 – 15 + k = 0
⇒ k + 7 = 0

Question 14.

Solution:
Given curve equation is y = bex/a
differentiating w.r.to ‘x’ on both sides, we have

Question 17.
A particle is moving along a line according to S = f(t) = 4t3 – 3t2 + 5t – 1 where S is measured in metres and t is measured in seconds. Find the velocity and acceleration at time t. At what time the acceleration is zero ?
Solution:
Given S = f(t) = 4t3 – 3t2 + 5t – 1
Velocity $$\frac{\mathrm{ds}}{\mathrm{dt}}$$ = 4(3t2) – 3 (2t) + 5(1) – 0
= 12t2 – 6t + 5
Acceleration $$\frac{\mathrm{d}^2 \mathrm{~s}}{\mathrm{dt}^2}$$ = 12 (2t) – 6(1) + 0
⇒ 24t = 6
⇒ t = $$\frac{1}{4}$$
⇒ 24t = 6
⇒ t = 4
∴ Acceleration is zero when t = $$\frac{1}{4}$$ sec.
