Many student little bit confuse about Distance and Displacement

Let us see define first

Distance- it is total path covered by any body to reach from one point to an other

Distance is a scalar quantity

Displacement- it is the shortest distance that a body take reach the from one point to another

displacement is a vector quantity

one question could be raised that

Is distance and Displacement can be equal

Answer - No

because distance is a scaler quantity and displacement is vector quantity

If we talk about Magnitude only than we can say both may be Equal
