What's this about?
If you got a point and a plane in the Euclidean space, you can calculate the distance between the point and the plane.
This means, you can calculate the shortest distance between the point and a point of the plane.
And how to calculate that distance?
It is a good idea to find a line vertical to the plane. Such a line is given by
calculating the normal vector of the plane. If you put it on lengt 1, the calculation becomes easier.
Cause if you build a line using your point and the direction given by a normal vector of length one,
it is easy to calculate the distance.
Can i see an example?
