# Euclidean Distance Calculator

The distance between two points in a Euclidean plane is termed as euclidean distance. It is also known as euclidean metric. Euclidean space was originally created by Greek mathematician Euclid around 300 BC. This calculator is used to find the euclidean distance between the two points.

## Euclidean Metric Calculation

The distance between two points in a Euclidean plane is termed as euclidean distance. It is also known as euclidean metric. Euclidean space was originally created by Greek mathematician Euclid around 300 BC. This calculator is used to find the euclidean distance between the two points.

#### Formula:

Where, p, q = Length of Line Segment

In an one dimensional space, euclidean distance is the the difference between two points. In two dimensional space, euclidean metric is calculated based on pythagorean theorem, whereas in n dimensional space, it is calculated with additional coordinates.

#### Example

If (p1, q1) is (1,2) and (p2,q2) is (4,5) , then
Euclidean distance = √(2-1) ^2 + (5-4)^2
Euclidean distance = √(1+1)
Euclidean distance = 1.414
