Distance between a Point and a Plane in 3-D

 Description Measure the distance between a point and a plane in three-dimensional space.

Specify the point.

 > $\mathrm{geom3d}\left[\mathrm{point}\right]\left(a,{0}{,}{3}{,}{-}{3}\right)$
 ${a}$ (1)

Specify the plane.

 >
 ${p}$ (2)

Measure the distance between the point and the plane.

 > $\mathrm{geom3d}\left[\mathrm{distance}\right]\left(a,p\right)$
