Distance between Two Planes in 3-D

 Description Measure the distance between two planes in three-dimensional space.

Specify the first plane.

 > $\mathrm{geom3d}\left[\mathrm{plane}\right]\left(p,{x}{+}{y}{+}{z}{=}{4},\left[{x}{,}{y}{,}{z}\right]\right)$
 ${p}$ (1)

Specify the second plane.

 > $\mathrm{geom3d}\left[\mathrm{plane}\right]\left(q,{x}{+}{y}{+}{z}{=}{-2},\left[{x}{,}{y}{,}{z}\right]\right)$
 ${q}$ (2)

Measure the distance between the two planes.

 > $\mathrm{geom3d}\left[\mathrm{distance}\right]\left(p,q\right)$
 ${2}{}\sqrt{{3}}$ (3)
