Find the distance between the planes 2x – y + 2z = 5 and 5x – 2.5y + 5z = 20. [CBSE 2017]
The distance between two planes: a1x + b1y + c1z + d1 = 0 and a2x + b2y + c2z + d2 = 0 is given by,
Let a = a1, b = b1, and c = c1
Let P(x1, y1, z1) be any point on the plane 2x – y + 2z = 5.
∴ 2x1 - y1 + 2z1 = 5
The length of perpendicular from P(x1, y1, z1) to the plane
5x - 2.5y + 5z = 20 is
Thus, the distance between the planes 2x – y + 2z = 5 and 5x - 2.5y + 5z = 20 is 1 unit.
