    google defines it as: A displacement is the shortest distance from the initial to the final position of a point P. Thus, it is the length of an imaginary straight path, typically distinct from the path actually travelled by P. A displacement vector represents the length and direction of this imaginary straight path.; case closed

    displacement is a vector quantity meaning it does not add up the total distance an object traveled. It actually only measures how far the object is from its starting point.
