In a plane with the normal (x,y) coordinates, the usual distance formula is that the distance between (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) is √((x1-x2)2+(y1-y2)2). This can be extended to n dimensions by letting the distance between (a1,a2,a3,...,an) and (b1,b2,b3,...,bn) be √((a1-b1)2+(a2-b2)2+...+(an-bn)2)

Length or distance between two points.


What is the positive number that tells you how far one point is from another point?

It is called the distance between the points. A common one is the Pythagorean distance but there are many other measures.


What are circles dimensioned by?

there are 3 measurements of a circle the diameter, which is the distance from one point of the circle through the center point to the other side the radius, which is the distance from the center point to any point of the circle (which is 1/2 of the diameter) and the circumference, which is the distance from one point on the circle all the way around to the point you started at


Is a point a radius or a diameter?

No, neither. The radius is the distance from the center point of a circle to its edge. The diameter is the distance from one edge to the other that passes through the center point. The diameter is therefore twice the radius.


What do you call the distance between a point on one wave to the same point on the next wave?

The distance between a point on one wave to the same point of the next wave is the wavelength.


What is the distance between one point of a wave to the same point of the next wave?

The distance between one point of a wave to the same point on the next wave is called the wavelength.

Twice the distance between a point and halfway to the other point.


How do you find the equidistant point for a straight line?

The equidistant point of a straight line is the middle. Measure the distance from one end to the other and half it.

Wavelength


What is the shortest distance to get from one point to another?

The shortest distance is displacement and total distance is length.

displacment


What is the distance between one point on one wave and the identicle point of another wave?

The wavelength.


Can a displacement from one point to another be zero yet the distance involves in moving these point be zero?

The dispacement from one point to another point cannot be zero unless they are the same point. And, in that case, it is not another point. The distance involved in moving from one point to the same point can have any non-negative value.


What is line segment RA?

with no other details I can only explain it as the distance between point R and point A. More details are needed if you want that distance when compared with other points.

Wavelength.


Is the amplitude of a wave is the distance between a point on one wave and the identical point on the next wave?

No, the distance between a point on one wave and the identical point on the next wave is the wavelength, not the amplitude. Amplitude is the height of the wave.


How do you find coordinates of a point given 1 point and midpoint?

since you know of one points and the halfway point between the other point. just multiply the halfway point by 2 and this is the total distance between the two points.


What is the distance between one point on a wave and the nearest point just like it?

The distance from crest to crest (or trough to trough) is the wavelength.
