so i am hoping that all of you are familiar with the fact that a basic way of finding the distance between two points in 3d space is a^2+b^2+z^2=c^2. anyway i wanted to know in the equation ds^s=dx^2+dz^2+dy^2-(cdt)^2 does this show the distance between two points in in 3-d space including 1 time Dimension or does it show something different. also is this is the distance between 2 point then is there a unit of measurement of is the distance really something like -3.45E17.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
