I will be showing you the difference between distance and displacement and my walk to school and back will help explain
My home will be the initial location
I always like to go this store that’s passed my school before school starts so that I can buy some drinks
The store is 5.9 miles away from my house
Right now my distance would be 5.9miles and my displacement would be the same
Right after the store I go straight to school
This would now make my distance 7.8 miles and my displacement 4 miles
I had to walk back 1.9 miles to get to school
After school I usually like to go to my friends house to study
His house 1.3 miles away from the school in the direction of my home
This would make mom distance 9.1 miles and my displacement 2.7 miles
After my friends house I go straight to my house which is 2.7 miles away Fromm my house
Now let’s go inside see if you were able to get what distance and displacement
At this point my distance would be 11.8 miles and my displacement 0 miles
And that is difference between distance and displacement
Distance is how much I walked in total so to solve you would have to add up add the distances
X=xf-xox=(5.9-1.9)-0x=4equation for displacement
I would add 5.9, 1.9, 1.3, and 2.7 making a total 11.8 miles
So every time I moved my position would change based on how far I am from my house
Displacement is the the overall change in position from the start
At the store it was 5.9 miles because the store is 5.9 miles from my house
