Class 11 Physics Motion In A Plane Position and Displacement Vectors

Position and Displacement Vectors

Position Vector: Position vector of an object at time t is the position of the object relative to the origin. It is represented by a straight line between the origin and the position at time t.

Displacement Vector: Displacement vector of an object between two points is the straight line between the two points irrespective of the path followed. The path length is always equal or greater than the displacement.
