Distance Between Two Points Calculation


Distance Between Two Points Calculator is an online tool for analytical geometry calculation programmed to find out the exact distance between the two given points by applying the pythagorean theorem. Distance between two points is a classical problem when Pythagoras theorem can be applied. According to the rule of right triangle, squared hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides. The same formulae is applied for the given two coordiantes (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) in the XY plane. The calculation for the distance between two points on a horizontal line, then, may be generalized as (x2 - x1 and for two points on a vertical line the distance is (y2 - y1). Then the formula for finding the distance between any two points based on the Pythagorean theorem as follows
