Python Math: Compute Euclidean distance
Python Math: Exercise-79 with Solution
Write a Python program to compute Euclidean distances.
Note: In mathematics, the Euclidean distance or Euclidean metric is the "ordinary" (i.e. straight-line) distance between two points in Euclidean space. With this distance, Euclidean space becomes a metric space. The associated norm is called the Euclidean norm.
import math # Example points in 3-dimensional space... x = (5, 6, 7) y = (8, 9, 9) distance = math.sqrt(sum([(a - b) ** 2 for a, b in zip(x, y)])) print("Euclidean distance from x to y: ",distance)
Euclidean distance from x to y: 4.69041575982343
