# Shortest Distance Between Point and Plane Calculator

Calculates the shortest distance in space between given point and plane equation.

The distance from a point to a plane is equal to length of the perpendicular lowered from a point on a plane.

If Ax + By + Cz + D = 0 is a plane equation, then distance from point P(P_{x} , P_{y} , P_{z}) to plane can be found using the following **formula:**

The distance from a point to a plane(d) = (AP_{x} + BP_{y} + CP_{z} + D)/ √(A+ B^{2} + C^{2})
