Distance Formulas & Calculator

The distance formula can be calculated using one of the following 2 formulas: one if you know the value for the speed "s" and time "t", another if you know the two points in the plane.

Formula Knowing the Speed "s" and the Time "t"

If you know the speed and time calculate the distance using the following formula:

$$d = s * t$$

Where:

$$s = "Speed Value"$$
$$t = "Time Value"$$
$$d = "Distance Value"$$

Formula Knowing the Point in the Plane

If you know the value of the two points in the plane, you can calculate the distance using the following formula:

$$d = sqrt((x2-x1)^[2] + (y2-y1)^[2])$$

Where:

$$(x1, y1) = "first point coordinate"$$
$$(x2, y2) = "second point coordinate"$$
$$d = "distance value"$$

Equation Definition

It is an equality which has at least one unknown value that must be cleared, these unknowns values are represented by letters.

Formula Definition

It is a representation of a rule or a general principle using letters. (Algebra, A. Baldor)
When describing formulas in plural, it is also valid to say "formulae".
