# Displacement Calculator

Displacement calculator – The displacement calculator is used to find the displacement between two points.

## What is displacement

It is the shortest distance from the initial(starting point) position to the final position(endpoint) of an object is called displacement and it’s a vector quantity because displacement has both magnitude and direction.

◉The value of displacement can be positive, negative or zero.

◉ SI unit of displacement is meter.

Note:-Displacement of an object can never be greater than the distance travelled object by it, because Displacement ≤ Distance.

Displacement(Δx) = xf – xi(final position – initial position) gives the direction of the final position as seen from the initial position.

## Physics Displacement formula

There are three different formulas to calculate the displacement of an object. Displacement is the distance an object has moved from its original position to its final position or the distance between the positions of the object at two different positions.

• Displacement(Δx) = xf – xi, Where xf → Final position and xi → Initial position
• Displacement(Δx) = ut + 1 / 2 at², Where u → Initial velocity, a → Acceleration and t → Time
• Displacement(Δx) = v² – u² / 2a, Where u → Initial velocity, a → Acceleration and v → Final velocity

## How to use this displacement calculator?

1. if you know only the starting position value and end position value then use the first tab of the calculator enter a value in the input field and click the button to calculate.

2. Second, if you know the initial velocity value, acceleration value and time then use the second tab of the calculator, enter all values in the input field and then click the button.

3. Third, if you know only the final and initial velocity of the object and also acceleration values then use the third tab of the calculator.
