All vector quantities can be represented by an arrow.
Magnitude = Length of LINE
The arrow is a straight line drawn to a suitable scale and the length of the arrow represents the magnitude of the vector while the arrow head represents the direction .
Scale: eg 1cm = 10m
The scale that is used must be chosen carefully in order for the whole drawing to fit on one page
the scale must be shown on the page.

Distance vs Displacement * A Start * B End Path traveled = DISTANCE Displacement = Straight line distance from starting point to finishing point. A B For rectilinear motion DISTANCE = DISPLACEMENT
Circular motion:
A - B displacement = diameter
distance = 1/ 2 circumference
A - A displacement = 0!
distance = circumference ( 2 r )

Distance vs Displacement * A Start * B End Path traveled = DISTANCE
Distance cannot be less than displacement.
A “negative” displacement is a movement in the opposite direction to the one CHOSEN as POSITIVE.
