geometry[SensedMagnitude] - find the sensed magnitude between two points

Calling Sequence

SensedMagnitude(A, B)

Parameters

A, B

-

two points

Description

• 

The routine computes the SensedMagnitude between two points A and B.

• 

The sign of the sensed magnitude is determined by the relative position of the points.

Horizontal Coordinate

Vertical Coordinate

Sign of Sensed Magnitude

A is to the left of B

N/A

positive

B is to the left of A

N/A

negative

Horizontal coordinates are the same

A is below B

positive

Horizontal coordinates are the same

B is below A

negative
