# How to Calculate Distance Between Two Give Points

Using ArcGIS API for JavaScript 3.22 and having two given Points as

``var pt1 = new Point(-106.61, 35.1107, new SpatialReference({ wkid: 4326 }));var pt2 = new Point(-108.61, 35.1107, new SpatialReference({ wkid: 4326 }));``

can you please let me know how I can calculate the distance from `pt1 to `pt2`?

``var map; require([ "esri/map", "esri/geometry/Point", "esri/SpatialReference", "esri/geometry/webMercatorUtils", "dojo/domReady!" ], function(Map, Point, SpatialReference, webMercatorUtils) { map = new Map("map", { basemap: "topo", center: [-106.61, 35.1107], zoom: 8 }); geometryService = new esri.tasks.GeometryService("https://utility.arcgisonline.com/ArcGIS/rest/services/Geometry/GeometryServer"); var pt1 = new Point(-106.61, 35.1107, new SpatialReference({ wkid: 4326 })); var pt2 = new Point(-108.61, 35.1107, new SpatialReference({ wkid: 4326 })); });``
