    Dynamic distance from point on circumference to a line.

    Good Morning experts,

    As shown in the attached image, i need to find the dynamic length 'l' which is perpendicular to the tangent and meets a vertical line. I have tried to use polar since i can directly manipulate the angle (theta of this system).
    I would really appriecenate all help and any tips.

    God bless you all.
