The neatest method is to use a normal vector to the plane. I show how this works in the drawing below.

finding the angle between a line and a plane (http://www.netcomuk.co.uk/~jenolive/vecang4.jpg)


We slide the normal vector n until its tail is at the point of intersection with the line L with the plane P. Then n and L together define a plane
