Displacement

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff. Posted in Properties

Displacement is the change in position.

  • Abbreviated as DISP

formula

\(d =  vt \)

\(d = x_f \;-\; x_i \)

Where:

\(d\) = displacement

\(v\) = velocity

\(t\) = time

\(x_f\) = final position

\(x_i\) = initial position

\(\Delta x\) = position differential \(x_f \;-\; x_i \)
