# If the vectors ikijk3i^+5k^,4i^+2j^-3k^ and ijk3i^+j^+4k^ are the coterminus edges of the parallelopiped, then find the volume of the parallelopiped. - Mathematics and Statistics

Sum

If the vectors 3hat"i" + 5hat"k", 4hat"i" + 2hat"j" - 3hat"k" and 3hat"i" + hat"j" + 4hat"k"  are the coterminus edges of the parallelopiped, then find the volume of the parallelopiped.

#### Solution

Let bar"a" = 3hat"i" + 5hat"k" , bar"b" = 4hat"i" + 2hat"j" - 3hat"k", bar"c" = 3hat"i" + hat"j" + 4hat"k"

∴ [bar"a",bar"b",bar"c"] = |(3,0,5),(4,2,-3),(3,1,4)|

= 3(8 + 3) - 0(16 + 9) + 5(4 - 6)

= 33 - 0 - 10

= 23

∴ volume of the parallelopiped = [bar"a",bar"b",bar"c"]

= 23 cubic units.
