# Position ~ Time Graph vs Displacement ~ Time Graph

BizzPhizz
1. Are these two the same? I'm not sure. Sometimes my teacher labels the Y axis with a Delta Displacement [E]. Other times it's just Position (M), so I'm not sure how to identify if we are finding Speed or Velocity.

I'm just assuming they are the same.

2. Also, position is a Vector quantity, but if it's not given a direction, can we assume it's the same as distance?

Thanks,
