POSITION, DISTANCE AND DISPLACEMENT

CONTENTS
Position

Displacement

POSITION
The position of an object in space or on a plane is the point at which the object can be located with reference to a given point (the origin).
DISTANCE
This is a measure of the separation between two points. It has magnitude but no direction. Hence, it is a scalar quantity

DETERMINATION OF DISTANCE BETWEEN TWO POINTS
If two points A and B located in a plane are defined by two ordered pair of values(X1 Y1) and (X2 Y2) or assumed to be in space where they are defined by (X1, Y1, Z1) and (X2, Y2, Z2) the distance between them can be determined by applying this relation.
S=√[(X2-X1)+(Y2-Y)]
OR
S=√[(X2-X1)+(Y2-Y)+(Z2-Z1)]

DISPLACEMENT
Displacement is the distance covered in a specified direction. It is a vector quantity, which has the same unit as distance…
