Equation of a Plane Tangent to a Sphere at a Point

The sphere above has radiusand centre A with position vectorLet C, with position vectorbe any point in a plane tangent to the sphere at a point B with position vector

Then

Take the dot product of this equation withto give

andsince the angle between a tangent and a radius is
