Find the distance between two points calculator

Enter the X,Y, and Z coordinates of two points.The calculator will return the distance between those two points. If the point is only in the X Y plane, leave the Z section blank.

Distance Formula

The following formula is used to find the distance between two points.

D = √[ ( X2-X1)^2 + (Y2-Y1)^2) + (Z2-Z1)^2)

  • Where X2 and X1 are the x coordinates
  • Y2 and Y1 are the y coordinates
  • Z2 and Z1 are the z coordinates

How to find the distance between two point

  1. First, determine the x coordinates

    This will be the x coordinates of the two points.

  2. Next, determine the y coordinates

    This will be the y coordinates of the two points.

  3. Next, determine the z coordinates

    If there are z coordinates for the points, record them accordingly.

  4. Calculate

    Calculate the distance between points by using the formula above.
