Position Defines an object’s location in space Relative to some reference Displacement is a vector Vector (2 dimensions) Length and direction Defines the change in position Straight line between start and finish Distance is a scalar No emphasis on direction Magnitude of the Displacement

Displacement Displacement Length of the Resultant Vector R = √ (y 2 - y 1 ) 2 + (x 2 - x 1 ) 2 Distance Formula Direction of Resultant Vector θ = arctan (Δy / Δx) = tan -1 (Δy / Δx) Refer to Figure 2.24, p. 54-55 for another example (x 1 , y 1 ) (x 2 , y 2 ) R θ
