Expert Answer:


Thanks for asking us a question in Ask the Expert section of

Planes and Lines are twin chapters and you need to be thorough with the topics that are common for both these chapters.
Sequence of topics you should start with:
1. Direction ratios and direction cosines
2. Equation of a line in space
3. Cartesian equation and vector equation of a line
4. Cartesian and vector equation of planes
5. Distance between line and a plane
6. Distance between a point and a plane
7. Skew lines
8. Shortest distance between two lines
9. Angle between two lines
10. Angle between a line and a plane

The direction ratios of the normal to the plane are same for the line perpendicularto the plane
