Question installation of sink trap

When installing a trap in a kitchen sink drain, is there a distance that it must be, down from the sink?

There are distances it can be no further than. Codewise it is to be placed as close as possible to the fixture outlet.

The fixture outlet to the trap weir can not exceed 24 inches. (This gives you plenty of leeway for many different applications)

Some codes also require the trap on a sink be on the same floor as the sink. Sounds funny but....

The main thing to remember is to make sure everything does downhill.
