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

\(\large{ d =  vt }\)

\(\large{ d = x_f \;-\; x_i }\)


\(\large{ d }\) = displacement

\(\large{ t }\) = time

\(\large{ v }\) = velocity

\(\large{ x_f }\) = final position

\(\large{ x_i }\) = initial position

\(\large{ \Delta x }\) = position differential
