# Displacement

on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

Displacement, abbreviated as d or DISP, is the change in position.  Displacement is a vector quantity having magnitude and direction, some of these include acceleration, drag, force, lift, momentum, thrust, torque, velocity, and weight.

## Displacement formula

$$\large{ d = v \; t }$$
Symbol English Metric
$$\large{ d }$$ = displacement $$\large{ft}$$  $$\large{m}$$
$$\large{ t }$$ = time $$\large{sec}$$ $$\large{s}$$
$$\large{ v }$$ = velocity $$\large{\frac{ft}{sec}}$$ $$\large{\frac{m}{s}}$$

## Displacement formula

$$\large{ d = \frac{ P\;t }{ F } }$$
Symbol English Metric
$$\large{ d }$$ = displacement $$\large{ft}$$  $$\large{m}$$
$$\large{ F }$$ = force $$\large{lbf}$$ $$\large{N}$$
$$\large{ P }$$ = power $$\large{W}$$ $$\large{\frac{kg-m^2}{s^3}}$$
$$\large{ t }$$ = time $$\large{sec}$$ $$\large{s}$$
