  • Distance vs. DisplacementDistance is a scalar quantity and displacement is a vector quantity.
  • Distance- has only magnitude- measures the actual ground covered- it can only be positive
  • Displacement- measured with reference to a specific point- straight line from starting point to end point- can be positive or negative
  • Easy UnderstandingDistance is the length of the path between 2 points.Displacement is the direction from the starting point and the length of a straight line from the starting point to the ending point.
  • Helpful TipThe SI Unit for distance/length is a meter
