A formula for calculation of the density function of the distance between two independent points randomly and uniformly chosen in a bounded convex domain D is given. The obtained formula permits to find an explicit form of the density function for the domains D with known chord length distributions. In particular, an application of the formula gives explicit expressions for in the cases of a disc, a regular triangle, a rectangle and a regular pentagon.
