Displacement is the change in position of the object, it implies that the object is moved or displaced. It has both magnitude and direction (vector) and is given by,

                                        

Where is final position, is initial position and  is change in position or displacement.

  • Distance travelled

Distance travelled is the total length of path travelled by the object between two positions. It has no direction and therefore cannot be negative.
