Question

Write direction cosines of a line parallel to z-axis.

Solution

A line parallel to zaxis, makes an angle of 90°, 90° and 0° with the x, y and z axes, respectively.

Thus, the direction cosines are given by

l = cos 90° =0

 m = cos 90° = 0 

n = cos 0 =1

Therefore, direction cosines of a line parallel to the zaxis are 0, 0, 1.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
