Diagonal of a rectangular box is \(d^{2} = a^{2} + b^{2} + c^{2}\)
where a, b and c are the sides of the rectangular box.

In this case, diagonal is \sqrt{100+ 100+ 0.01}
= \sqrt{200.01}

the longest straight line distance will be the diagonal of the rectangular box which is sqrt (200+ 0.01)

the largest distance between any two points in a cuboid is the diagonal .
the length of the diagonal = root of l^2+b^2+h^2.
root of 10^2+10^2+0.1^2 = root of 200.01
