## Homework Statement

Suppose that v(t)=t

^{2}-2t -8, 1≤t≤6 is the velocity function (in meters per second) of a particle moving along a line. Find a) the displacement and b) the distance traveled by the particle during the given time interval.

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

so i integrated the velocity function at the interval 1 to 6 and got the answer (-10/3)m. so i have no idea if this is the distance or displacement and if it is one of those, then how would i find the other one?

thanks!
