# geoana.em.BaseDipole.distance#

BaseDipole.distance(xyz)#

Scalar distance from dipole to a set of gridded xyz locations

Where $$\mathbf{p}$$ is the location of the source and $$\mathbf{q}$$ is a point in 3D space, this method returns the scalar distance:

$d = \sqrt{(q_x - p_x)^2 + (q_y - p_y)^2 + (q_z - p_z)^2}$

for all locations $$\mathbf{q}$$ supplied in the input argument xyz. For dipoles, $$\mathbf{p}$$ is the dipole location. For circular loops, $$\mathbf{p}$$ defines the center location for the loop.

Parameters
xyz(n, 3) numpy.ndarray

Gridded xyz locations

Returns
1. numpy.ndarray Scalar distances from dipole to xyz locations
