The position and the displacement calculations are determined when you are aware of the location and the change of the location of an object.
”Where are you?" is a question we've all been asked because of our poor navigational skills. In how many different ways can this question be answered? 'I'm in front of the red truck,' might be an answer. One might even mention your coordinates on the planet if you want to be more specific. There are numerous methods for determining your location. Normally, position refers to the location or placement of someone or something, but let's look at the scientific definition of position.
The shortest distance between the starting and final points is used to determine displacement, which favors straight-line paths over curved paths.
1. What is the relationship between position and displacement ? Position (x) can be defined as the location of an object at any given time, and displacement is the difference between two position vectors.
2. How do you find the displacement of a position function?
The change in position of an object is called displacement. If the object moves from the position a(t1) to position a(t2) , then the displacement is a(t2) - a(t1) over the interval (ti , t2).
3. What are the similarities between position and displacement?
Position (x) can be defined as the location of an object at any given time, and Displacement is the change in position of an object. Both of these are vector quantities and have to be measured from the frame of reference.
