I am learning this in calculus right now and I am also having a tough time in there but it is beginning to make more sense. I understood the displacement and position fairly well. It was simple to understand and did not take a lot of math in order to do. I am still having a tough time calculating the magnitude and direction of forces if they are at angles....
