Enter the vertical distance and the horizontal distance into the Diagonal Distance Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Diagonal Distance.

## Diagonal Distance Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Diagonal Distance.

DD  = sqrt (V^2+H^2)

• Where DD is the Diagonal Distance
• V is the vertical distance
• H is the horizontal distance

## How to Calculate Diagonal Distance?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Diagonal Distance.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the vertical distance.
• The vertical distance is given as: 7.
2. Next, determine the horizontal distance.
• The horizontal distance is provided as: 9.
3. Finally, calculate the Diagonal Distance using the equation above:

DD  = sqrt (V^2+H^2)

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

DD  = sqrt (7^2+9^2) = 11.4

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

vertical distance = 10

horizontal distance = 15

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer.

DD  = sqrt (V^2+H^2) = ?
