Displacement

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

displacement 6Displacement, abbreviated as d or 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

\(\large{ d =  v \; t }\) 
Symbol English Metric
\(\large{ d  }\) = displacement \(\large{ft}\)  \(\large{m}\) 
\(\large{ t }\) = time \(\large{sec}\) \(\large{s}\)
\(\large{ v }\) = velocity \(\large{\frac{ft}{sec}}\) \(\large{\frac{m}{s}}\)

 

Displacement with Power formula

\(\large{ d =  \frac{ P\;t }{ F } }\) 
Symbol English Metric
\(\large{ d  }\) = displacement \(\large{ft}\)  \(\large{m}\) 
\(\large{ F }\) = force \(\large{lbf}\) \(\large{N}\)
\(\large{ P }\) = power \(\large{W}\) \(\large{\frac{kg-m^2}{s^3}}\)
\(\large{ t }\) = time \(\large{sec}\) \(\large{s}\)
