most codes say 30" to combustible surface like a decorative wood hood over cooktop. the metal style hoods can be a little less but keep in mind your eye level & also how far the hood projects as you don't want to get bopped in the head every time you are cooking. the typical 6" high hood are generally 63" to underside with overhead cabinet about 69" floor to underside.

The installation instructions with the hood and the cooktop (or range) will specifiy how to install the hood. Read those and comply with them.

Always check the range and hood installation instructions. If you are using a high BTU output cooktop like pictured, the distance to a wood (combustible) surface can be as much as 48".

Make sure the hood is up high enough, and back far enough to not be in the way when cooking.

As Deborah said, you should always follow the instructions in the manuals from the range/cooktop manufacturer, and the range hood manufacturer. But also, keep in mind that sometimes these recommendations may conflict with each other - in which case, it would usually be better to call both companies and discuss your requirements with a representative.
