## Homework Statement

The line intersects a plane at an angle alpha=2pi/3. The line is defined by

**r**=μ

**n**, and the plane by

**r.m**=0, with

**n**and

**m**unit vectors. Calculate the shortest distance from the plane to the point on the line with μ=2.

## Homework Equations

?

## The Attempt at a Solution

I want to find the value of μ at the point of intersection. Then it will be easy to find the distance, as d=(2-μ at intersection)sin(2pi/3). However, I don't know how to find μ. Any hints?
