(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

This is just a general question. When you have a velocity-time graph, I know that the area under the graph is the displacement. How about the distance? It's not the same as the displacement value, is it?

2. Relevant equations

n/a

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm stumped. I don't even know if it's possible to find distance, since velocity is a vector and distance is a scalar value.
