VECLEN

**Syntax:** **VECLEN( argumentlist)**

*argumentlist* = Any combination of numbers, cells or ranges

**VECLEN** returns the square root of the sum of squares of
its arguments. It calculates the length of a vector in
N-dimensional space. In the two-argument case, **VECLEN**
is the Pythagorean theorem for the hypotenuse of a right
triangle, given the length of the other two sides. The
formula is given by:

**Examples:**

**VECLEN**(3, 4) = 5

**VECLEN**(-1, -2, -3, 0) = 3.7416574

**VECLEN**(A1..A2) = 2 where A1 = 1 and A2 = 2.236068

**VECLEN**(S1..S3, 4) = 5.4772256, where S1 = 1, S2 = 2, and S3 = 3

**Excel function:** *N/A*
