From point A to point B

You need the X and Y value of both point A and B

Formula =

Distance = Square root of [(x1 + x2)2 + (y1 + y2)2]

So therefore given points (1:2) and (5:-6)

Square root of (1 - 5)squared + (2 + 6)squared

=Square root of -4 squared + 8 squared

=Square root of 16 + 64

=Square root of 80

This can be your answer but you should go a step further

=Square root of 80

=Square root of 16 * 5

=4*Square root of 5

How do you construct a similar figure?

The two defining requirements of similar figures is that the corresponding angles are all equal and that the ratio of corresponding sides is a constant.So if you know the ratio, R, then draw a line parallel to a line of the first figure whose length is R*(length of line in first figure). At its end, draw an angle congruent to the corresponding angle in the first figure. Draw the other arm of the angle so that its length is R*(length of the corresponding line in the first figure). Continue until you return to the starting point.

How do you calculate percent elongation in materials?

To calculate percent elongation with an equation: [(final length - initial length) / initial length] x 100 = percent elongation On a graph - To calculate percent elongation, draw a line to the x-axis from the point of fracture parallel to the straight line part of the graph. The extension at this point is then divided by the gauge length.
