    Ok so there are two types of units: 1) Basic (given above by ashna) 2) Derived for example: speed = distance /time unit of distance = metre and unit of time = second hence unit of speed = m/s

    Any physical quantity Q can then be dimensionally expressed as [Q] = L^1 M^2 T^3

    where displacement is just the other word for distance , displacement is the shortest dist travelled and distance is the longest possible distance = L (length)

    Dimension of a body is determined by the co-ordinate axis attach to it. There are 1D, 2D, 3D and 4D(It includes Time).The existence of 4D is beyond our imagination.
