Formulas for the distance between two points

To find the distance between two vectors, use the distance formula.

\(d=\sqrt{(x_2-x_1)^2 + (y_2-y_1)^2 + (z_2-z_1)^2}\)

In the formula the \(x \) and \(y \) vectors stand for the position in a vector space.

Example

The following example calculates the distance between points \((0, -2, 7)\) und \((8, 4, 3)\).

\(d=\sqrt{(x_2-x_1)^2 + (y_2-y_1)^2 + (z_2-z_1)^2}\)

\(d=\sqrt{(8-0)^2 + (4-(-2))^2 + (7-3)^2}\)

\(d=\sqrt{(8)^2 + (6)^2 + (4)^2}\)

\(d=\sqrt{64 + 36 +16}\)

\(d=\sqrt{116} = 10,77\)

The distance between the points \((0, -2, 7)\) and \((8, 4,3)\) is \(10,77\)
