- Displacement is the shortest distance travelled by a body from one point to other. It is a vector quantity. Which has both magnitude and direction. The displacement is illustrated by the given figure. Then there is distance.
Distance is a measure to find out how much area is covered by a moving body when it is travelled from one point to the other it is similar quantity , which does not have any direction only the magnitude is there in the case of the distance. The given figure will explain about the distance.
Speed is the distance that is travelled by an object. But then there is velocity where distance is travelled by an object per unit time in a certain direction. Velocity is a vector quantity, where as Speed has scalar quantity.
