Calling Sequence

Distance(p1, p2)

Parameters

p1

-

n-element list or n-Vector

p2

-

n-element list or n-Vector

Description

• 

The command Distance(p1, p2) computes the distance between the points p1 and p2, which must have the same dimensionality (and orientation, when each of the points is a Vector).

• 

This command is part of the Student[Calculus1] package, so it can be used in the form Distance(..) only after executing the command with(Student[Calculus1]).  However, it can always be used in the form Student[Calculus1][Distance](..).

The Student[Calculus1][Distance] command was introduced in Maple 2018.
