Question about displacement

  1. Jun 10, 2010 #1
    Hi,
    Sorry about the question, as I'm sure its super simple, I'm new to physics :)

    If I'm running a on a circular track and I do say 4 laps (1/4 mile each lap, 1 mile total) is my displacement equal to 0. Since I ended the run exactly where I started?

    Thanks for the help!
