Discovery of Cell:
It is the length of actual path traversed by a body between its initial and final positions, irrespective of the direction in which the body travels.
COMPARISON BETWEEN DISTANCE AND DISPLACEMENT
|The distance travelled refers to the actual length of the indirect path.||Displacement refers to the straight line path between the initial and the final positions.|
|Distance is a scalar quantity.||Displacement is a vector quantity.|
|The distance travelled by a moving body cannot be zero||The final displacement of a moving body can be zero.|
|Direction doesn’t matter||Direction matters|
