Euclidean distance facts for kids
In Euclidean geometry, the Euclidean distance is the usual distance between two points p and q. This distance is measured as a line segment. The Pythagorean theorem can be used to calculate this distance.
Euclidean distance on the plane
In the Euclidean plane, if p = (p1, p2) and q = (q1, q2) then the distance is given by
Alternatively, if the polar coordinates of the point p are (r1, θ1) and those of q are (r2, θ2), then the distance between the points is
