Perpendicular Length/Distance Tutorial

Perpendicular Length/Distance Tutorial

Perpendicular Length/Distance Definition

This is used to generate the Length of the perpendicular from point(x1, y1) to the line Ax + By + C = 0.

Length of the perpendicular Formula

Perpendicular Length/Distance
perpendicular where (x1, y1) is the given point, Ax + By + C = 0 is the given equation.

Length of the perpendicular Example

Find the length of the perpendicular from the point (4,3) on the line x + 2y + 5 = 0. x1 = 4, y1 = 3, A = 1, B = 2, C = 5 Substitute in the formula as perpendicular Length of the perpendicular = 3 The above example will clearly illustrates how to calculate the Perpendicular Length/Distance manually.

This tutorial will help you dynamically to find the Analytical Geometry problems.
