## Displacement

Displacement ( $$DISP$$ ) is the change in position.  Displacement is a vector quantity having magnitude and direction, some of these include acceleration, drag, force, lift, momentum, thrust, torque, velocity, and weight.

### Displacement formula

$$\large{ d = vt }$$

$$\large{ d = x_f \;-\; x_i }$$

Where:

$$\large{ d }$$ = displacement

$$\large{ t }$$ = time

$$\large{ v }$$ = velocity

$$\large{ x_f }$$ = final position

$$\large{ x_i }$$ = initial position

$$\large{ \Delta x }$$ = position differential
