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

What is the distance between two points?

The distance between two points is calculated using the formula above.

How to calculate the distance between two points?

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.
