This is a 3D distance formula calculator, which will calculate the straight line or euclidean distance between two points in three dimensions

Formula for 3D Euclidean Distance
The formula for three-dimension distance is:
- d: the distance between the two points (the hypotenuse)
- x1, y1, z1: the x, y, and z coordinates of point 1
- x2, y2, z2: the x, y, and z coordinates of point 2
Example Distance Calculation
Let’s say you have 2 points, (x, y, z):
- (4, 9, 3)
- (0, 6, 14)
Here’s how you do the math:
Approximately 12.083 units separate the two points.
Using the 3D Distance Formula Calculator
To start, leave the Dimensions setting at 3.
Next, enter the x, y, and z coordinates of the two points. The top table holds the X, Y, & Z for the first point, the lower holds the X, Y, & Z for the second.
Finally, hit the Compute Distance button and we’ll show you the distance between points.
Afterwards, visit our other calculators and tools.
