## HOW TO FIND SHORTEST DISTANCE BETWEEN TWO LINES

### SHORTEST DISTANCE BETWEEN TWO LINES

1st of all we shall find out shortest distance between two Parallel lines.

Consider two parallel lines whose equations in vector form are given by## Problem 1

_{ ,}

_{ }and

_{ }vectors ,we get

Now applying this formula to find the shortest distance between two lines .

=√(81)+(196)+(16)

=√293

Magnitude of
= √49

= 7

Putting all these values in the formula of Shortest Distance between two lines .Now Find distance between two skew lines i.e. Lines which are not Parallel lines.

##
**Problem 2**

Consider two parallel lines whose equations in vector form are given by

Now comparing these equations with standard form , and write_{ ,}

_{ }and

_{ }vectors ,we get

Now applying this formula to find the shortest distance between two lines
