Formula for 2D Euclidean Distance
The formula for two-dimension distance is:
- d: the distance between the two points (or the hypotenuse)
- x1, y1: the x and y coordinates of point 1
- x2, y2: the x and y coordinates of point 2
Example Distance Calculation
Let's say you have 2 points, (x, y):
- (4, 9)
- (0, 6)
Here's how you do the math:
The distance between these points is 5.
Using the 2D Distance Formula Calculator
First, leave the Dimensions setting at 2.
Next, enter the x, y coordinates of the two points. The top table holds the X & Y for the first point, the lower holds the X & Y for the second.
Now, hit the Compute Distance button and we'll show you the distance – it's that simple. Enjoy!
