Plane Definition by Tool Axis Vector

Plane Definition by Tool Axis Vector

Hello, I need to define a plane by using an input tool axis vector to create a plane perpendicular to the vector. I have been working with the "Equation" plane type, but the I,J,K values of the tool axis vector need to be modified with a formula to use the A, B, C inputs for the Equation plane definition.

I am using parameters for the I,J,K vector values and I think I just need to apply a formula to these values to make them compatible with the Equation plane definition.

I need help with the math in the formula. 

 

Thank you!
