Q1.

Answer.  $\stackrel{\to }{a}×\stackrel{\to }{b}=|\begin{array}{rrr}\stackrel{^}{i}& \stackrel{^}{j}& \stackrel{^}{k}\\ 1& -7& 7\\ 3& -2& 2\end{array}|$

Q2.

Answer.  $\left(\stackrel{\to }{a}+\stackrel{\to }{b}\right)×\left(\stackrel{\to }{a}-\stackrel{\to }{b}\right)=|\begin{array}{ccc}\stackrel{^}{i}& \stackrel{^}{j}& \stackrel{^}{k}\\ 4& 4& 0\\ 2& 0& 4\end{array}|=\stackrel{^}{i}\left(16\right)-\stackrel{^}{j}\left(16\right)+\stackrel{^}{k}\left(-8\right)=16\stackrel{^}{i}-16\stackrel{^}{j}-8\stackrel{^}{k}$ $\begin{array}{rl}\therefore \left(\stackrel{\to }{a}+\stackrel{\to }{b}\right)×\left(\stackrel{\to }{a}-\stackrel{\to }{b}\right)& =\sqrt{{16}^{2}+\left(-16{\right)}^{2}+\left(-8{\right)}^{2}}\\ & =\sqrt{{2}^{2}×{8}^{2}+{2}^{2}×{8}^{2}+{8}^{2}}\\ & =8\sqrt{{2}^{2}+{2}^{2}+1}=8\sqrt{9}=8×3=24\end{array}$

Q3.

Answer.    $\begin{array}{l}⇒\frac{3}{4}+{\mathrm{cos}}^{2}\theta =1\\ ⇒{\mathrm{cos}}^{2}\theta =1-\frac{3}{4}=\frac{1}{4}\\ ⇒\mathrm{cos}\theta =\frac{1}{2}⇒\theta =\frac{\pi }{3}\\ \therefore {a}_{3}=\mathrm{cos}\frac{\pi }{3}=\frac{1}{2}\end{array}$

Q4.

Answer. $\begin{array}{l}\left(2\stackrel{^}{i}+6\stackrel{^}{j}+27\stackrel{^}{k}\right)×\left(\stackrel{^}{i}+\lambda \stackrel{^}{j}+\mu \stackrel{^}{k}\right)=\stackrel{\to }{0}\\ ⇒|\begin{array}{cc}\stackrel{^}{j}& \stackrel{^}{k}\\ 2& 6& 27\\ 1& \lambda & \mu \end{array}|=0\stackrel{^}{i}+0\stackrel{^}{j}+0\stackrel{^}{k}\\ ⇒\stackrel{^}{i}\left(6\mu -27\lambda \right)-\stackrel{^}{j}\left(2\mu -27\right)+\stackrel{^}{k}\left(2\lambda -6\right)=0\stackrel{^}{i}+0\stackrel{^}{j}+0\stackrel{^}{k}\end{array}$
