    just a quick reminder, remember the formula for when the surface area revolution if y is rotated around the y axis
    isn't it the same? but instead of the x coordinates you use the y coordinates

    how do you find the distance between 2 lines in vectors?

    Well there are only two scenarios (when you think about it), they're either parallel and you have to find the distance or they're skew. Any other case and they'll intersect.

    Say you had point A on line 1, and a general point B on line 2 (and they're parallel). You simply have to find the vector AB, and say the dot product with the line direction (it's the same for both lines) is equal to 0. This then gives you a value for the scalar parameter you used for the general point of B, and thus you can find the exact vector AB, and then it's magnitude, giving you the distance.

    2015 Q6 - what is going on with the area in part d? What method have they used

    The Symmetry of THIS hyperbola ( not every hyperbola) make an angle of 90 degree, so you only need to take 1/2x|OQ|x|OR|
    you should check last question, question 8c, it is driving me crazy for that one

    If 2 lines are skew e.g. R1= (A)+t(B) R2=(C)+s(D). Then distance = |(A-C)crossproduct(B-D)| divided by |(B-D)|

    Q7b - what does that notation mean?
    Dot notation. Just means multiply (6 x 4 x 2)

    If the position vectors a, b, c have scalar product 0 does that mean the origin, a, b, and c lie on the same plane

    Good luck everyone! We're all amazingly brave for taming the beast that is FP3.

    If I see these four words, which will forever haunt me, "find the locus of..." Ima go die during the exam

    Not necessarily as they could be perpendicular in any direction. I assume you mean a•(bxc), if that equals 0 then you have a plane as your volume is 0.

    Yes but not necessarily through the origin.
