Displacement Vector: Distance traveled by a point along a linear or straight path is called the displacement vector. It is a vector which gives the position of a point with reference to a point other than the origin of the coordinate system.
It is represented by Ř.
Explanation: Suppose, the distance traveled by a point along a straight path is, AB = R.
So, R is the displacement vector.
Displacement=ΔR = R2 – R1
R2 refers to the value of the final position.
R1 refers to the value of the initial position.
ΔR is the symbol used to represent displacement.
