Distance Calculator

The distance formula is used to determine the distance between two points \(p_1\) and \(p_2\). The formula is derived from Pythagore's Theorem. You need two pair of coordinates: \(p_1 = (x_1, y_1)\) and \(p_2 = (x_2, y_2)\). The distance between the points is then determined by the following formula. $$ distance = \sqrt{(x_2 - x_1)^2 + (y_2 - y_1)^2} $$
