"This book presents in an elegant way, the essentials of two and three dimensions of analytical geometry with plenty of examples to illustrate the basic ideas and to bequeath to the students numerous techniques of problem-solving. The exercises provide ample problems to supplement steady progress and to broaden the intuition of generalization. The overall approach is systematic, rigorous and least dependent on Euclidean propositions."--BOOK JACKET.

A Collection of Problems in Analytical Geometry, Part II: Three-Dimensional Analytical Geometry is a collection of problems dealing with analytical geometry in the field of theoretical mechanics. The book discusses rectangular Cartesian coordinates in three-dimensional space and the division of an interval in a given ratio. The sample questions concern problems dealing with isosceles triangles, vertices, and center of gravity of equal masses. The book defines the concept of a vector and then lists problems concerning the triangle law and the scalar product of two vectors. Other problems focus on the equations of a surface and a curve and on questions related to the intersection of three surfaces. The text lists other problems such as the equation of a plane, the direction-vector of a straight line, and miscellaneous problems pertaining to the equations of a plane, of a straight line, and of a sphere in a direction-vector. The selection is useful for professors in analytical geometry and for other courses in physic-mathematics and general engineering.
