View Answer

Explanation: First imagine the line in profile plane parallel to vertical plane as here we are asked to find the side view’s length so even if the line is rotated within the horizontal plane the line length will not change and also rotated with respect to the horizontal plane which is calculated as follows 15 x cos (40) =11.4 cm.

11. A line of length X cm lied on horizontal plane turned 60 degrees with respect to horizontal plane by keeping one of its ends fixed and attained length of Y cm top view. Which of the following statement is true?

a) X =Y

b) X=2 * Y

c) X= ½ * Y

d) X >Y

View Answer

Explanation: As cos (60) =0.5. The X would equal to ½ *Y. The relation would be like this. X=Y happens if we watch from front view. And X will not be greater than Y as X is made to turn either it would stay same or become less than it.

12. There will be no change in length if the line is viewed parallel to plane on which the line is present and also if the line is rotated with respect to perpendicular planes.

a) True

b) False

View Answer

Explanation: There will be no change in length if the line is viewed parallel to plane on which the line is present and also if the line is rotated with respect to perpendicular planes. If the line is rotated with respect to the same plane on which it is located then a new measure is formed.

13. A line of length 25 cm at first lied on the profile plane parallel to horizontal plane and then keeping one of its ends fixed turned 55 degrees with respect to horizontal plane and then turned 65 degrees with respect to profile plane. What is the length of line in top view?

a) 22.65 cm

b) 10.56 cm

c) 14.33 cm

d) 20.47 cm

View Answer

Explanation: First imagine the line in profile plane parallel to vertical plane as here we are asked to find the side view’s length so even if the line is rotated within the horizontal plane the line length will not change and also rotated with respect to the horizontal plane which is calculated as follows 25 x cos (55)= 14.33 cm.
