    Problem: Find the angle between the planes with the given equations:

    2x - y + z = 5 and x + y - z = 1

    Solution:
    Angle between two planes (h_1,k_1,l_1,d_1) and (h_2,k_2,l_l,d_2) is given as

    Cos∅=(h_1 h_2+k_1 k_2+l_1 l_2)/(√(h_1^2+k_1^2+l_1^2 )×√(h_2^2+k_2^2+l_2^2 ))

    =((2)×(1)+(-1)×(1)+(1)×(-1))/(√((2)^2+(-1)^2+(1)^2 )×√((1)^2+(1)^2+(-1)^2 ))

    =0

    Or,Cos∅=0

    Or,∅=〖Cos 〗^(-1) 0= 90°=π/2

    Therefore the angle between the two given planes is π/2

    Problem: Find the values of r' (t) and r'' (t) for the given values of t:

    r (t) = i cos t + j sin t; t = π/4

    Solution:
    r (t)= i cos⁡t+ j sin⁡t

    r^' (t)=d{r(t)}/dt=∂(Cos t)/∂t i+∂(Sin t)/∂t j=-Sin ...
