# Displacement

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

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 $$x_f \;-\; x_i$$
