Online Displacement calculator - you can use 3 different formulas to calculate displacement
It is shortest distance from the initial(starting point) position to the final position(end point) of an object is called displacement and it's a vector quantity because displacement have 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 see from the initial postion.
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.
(1):-When you know only final position value and initial position value:- Displacement(Δx) = xf - xi.
(2):-When you know initial velocity value, acceleration of object and time then used this formula Displacement(Δx) = ut + 1 / 2 at². Note:- this formula is also used when you know velocity and time 👍 Δx = ut, acceleration is zero
(3):-Third when you know the initial velocity value of the object, the final velocity of the object and acceleration then used this formula Displacement(Δx) = v² - u² / 2a.
◉ if you know only starting position value and end position value then used the first tab of the calculator and enter a value in the proper input field and click the button to calculate.
◉ 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 proper input field and then click the button.
◉ 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.
