       Distance
       Displacement
1.    It is the length of path traversed by the object in a certain time.                  
 
 
 
 
2.      It is a scalar quantity that is it has   only the magnitude.
 
3.      It depends on the path followed by the object.
 
4.      It is always positive.
 
 
5.      It can be more than or equal to the magnitude of displacement
It is the distance traveled by the object in a specified direction in a certain time (that is the distance between the final and initial positions).
 
 
It is a vector quantity that is it has both the magnitude and direction.
 
It does not depend on the path followed by the object.
 
It can be positive, negative and even zero.
