How do I find a vector which is the projection of another vector onto a plane?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

By projection, I mean perpendicular projection onto this plane. I know that this vector must lie in the plane and have a minimum angle with the original vector, but it seems like setting up the problem in this manner is unnecessarily messy. There should be another (better/faster) way.
