Distance between vectors

  1. Nov 13, 2005 #1
    I have two vectors in the form [tex]\vec{v} = v_x \^{i} + v_y \^{j} + v_z \^{k}[/tex]. What's the easiest way to find the distance between them?

    Err, goto yuor other post, the answer is there.

    The distance of two vectors (expressed in their components [tex](v_x,v_y,v_z)[/tex]) is just the magnitude of the vector you get after subtracting them. You are doing this in your other post.
