Solution:
As we know the.. orthocentre is the point of intersection of altitudes of the triangle...
soo for right angle triangle.. orthocenter is the vertex itself on which right angle is made..
Circumcentre : circumcentre is the poin of intersection of the perpendicular bisector of the sides of the triangle..
so for rightangle triangle... circumcentre is the midpoint of the hypotenuse..

so distance b/w Orhtocentre and Circumcentre is
OD = (32+ 32)1/2
= 3*(2)1/2



thanks and regards
