In the first section, you briefly looked at how scientists talk about motion in physics. In this section, you are going to look more closely at how distance and displacement relate to motion. Displacement, in addition to distance and position, is often used by scientists to graph motion data.

Video segment. Assistance may be required. Watch the video clip below to help you with the concept of displacement.
