If a body travels from position A to position B, the shortest distance between A and B is the displacement. So displacement is the length of the straight line joining A and B. The distance is the length of the path along which body has actually travelled to reach position B from position A. Hence displacement... read more

If a body travels from position A to position B, the shortest distance between A and B is the displacement. So displacement is the length of the straight line joining A and B. The distance is the length of the path along which body has actually travelled to reach position B from position A. Hence displacement has only one value between two positions whereas distance travelled can have different values depending on path traversed. The displacement is a vector quantity having magnitude as well as direction whereas displacement has only magnitude. read less

Distance tells you all the possible paths between any two points whereas displacement tells you the shortest path between the same points. Distance is a number and hence can be positive, zero or negative. (scalar quantity) whereas displacement is a direction(vector quantity) denoted by arrow mark on... read more

Displacement is the shortest path (under the usual Euclidean metric), that is, the directed straight line segment that joins the initial position to the final position of a particle whose motion is being investigated in a given period of time.

Displacement is the shortest path (under the usual Euclidean metric), that is, the directed straight line segment that joins the initial position to the final position of a particle whose motion is being investigated in a given period of time. Distance on the other hand is the total length of the path of motion (that is the locus) of the particle. Displacement is thus a vector (under usual notion of "vectors" in physics) while distance is a scalar (under usual notion of "vectors" in physics). The reader should note that the notions of scalars and vectors in physics are somewhat vague and non-rigorous. There is a concept of vectors and scalars in mathematics also that is quite different from that of physics. read less

Moreover to these points.distance can have only positive values whereas displacement can have positive,negative and zero values. For example, the distance travelled by a body on a circular path is its circumference of the circle The displacement of the same body is zero

Displacement is moving an object from one end to the other.where the things are displaced at proper place. Distance u push the thing at a short distant place.for example if u want to move the object like fridge then u will move it at a short distant but if u ha ve a light object u can easily displace... read more
