p5.js | mag() Function
The mag() function in p5.js is used to find the magnitude or length of a vector. As a vector does not have a starting position, the magnitude is calculated from position (0, 0) to (x, y). It is equivalent to using dist(0, 0, x, y).
mag( a, b )
Parameters: This function accept two parameters as mentioned above and described below:
- a: It is a number which denotes the first value, that is the “x” coordinate of the vector.
- b: It is a number which denotes the second value, that is the “y” coordinate of the vector.
Return Value: It returns a number with the magnitude of the vector.
Below examples illustrate the mag() function in p5.js:
