# distance (distance)

(distance obj1 obj2 quant) means that the shortest distance between the two objects obj1 and obj2 is quant. Note that the difference between the predicates length and distance is that the length is used to state the LengthMeasure of one of the dimensions of a single object, while distance is used to state the LengthMeasure that separates two distinct objects.
