Online calculator for calculating the square of the distance between vectors with 2 elements
To perform the calculation enter the two vectors whose distance is to be calculated. Then press the button "Calculate".

To find the distance or its square between two vectors, use the distance formula.
\(d^2=(x_2x_1)^2 + (y_2y_1)^2 + (z_2z_1)^2\)
In the formula the \(x \) and \(y \) vectors stand for the position in a vector space.
The following example calculates the square of the distance between the points \((0, 2, 7)\) and \((8, 4, 3)\).
\(d^2=(x_2x_1)^2 + (y_2y_1)^2 + (z_2z_1)^2\)
\(d^2=(80)^2 + (4(2))^2 + (73)^2\)
\(d^2=(8)^2 + (6)^2 + (4)^2\)
\(d^2=64 + 36 +16\)
\(d^2=116\)
The square of the distance between the points \((0, 2, 7)\) and \((8, 4, 3)\) is \(116\)
