a) 37

b) 44.65

c) 46.40

d) 37.53

View Answer

Explanation: Since here distance from side view and top view is asked for that we need the distance between the front view and side view (8+20); front view and top view (17+20)and these lines which form perpendicular to each other gives needed distance, answer is square root of squares of both the distances √(28

^{2}+37

^{2}) =46.40 units.

7. If a point P is placed in between the projection planes in third quadrant. The distance from side view to reference line towards front view and the distance between top view and reference line towards top view will be same.

a) True

b) False

View Answer

Explanation: The projection will be drawn by turning the other planes parallel to vertical plane in clockwise direction along the lines of intersecting of planes. And so as we fold again the planes at respective reference lines and then drawing perpendiculars to the planes at those points the point of intersection gives the point P.

8. A point is 2 m away from the vertical plane and 1 m away from profile plane and 9 m away from horizontal plane in 3rd quadrant then the projections are drawn on paper the distance between the side view and top view of point is _____________

a) 21

b) 14.86

c) 11.4

d) 10.4

View Answer

Explanation: Since here distance from side view and top view is asked for that we need the distance between the front view and side view (1+9); front view and top view (9+2)and these lines which form perpendicular to each other gives needed distance, answer is square root of squares of both the distances √(10

^{2}+11

^{2}) =14.86 m.
