Homework Help: Distance between vectors

I have two vectors in the form $$\vec{v} = v_x \^{i} + v_y \^{j} + v_z \^{k}$$. 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 $$(v_x,v_y,v_z)$$) is just the magnitude of the vector you get after subtracting them. You are doing this in your other post.
