Hello everyone. I want to learn Physics, so I've been trying to teach myself. I still don't know much, and am just now getting to the formula for Velocity. The internet tutorial I am using says it is this.. Average Velocity = Displacement / Elapsed Time And I've been plugging in the numbers, and it's not hard or anything. I was just wondering.. Why would displacement be in the numerator? Shouldn't it be distance? If I travel somewhere and then travel back to my destination 30 times in an hour, won't my velocity be different than if I do it 5 times? But I will end up with the same Displacement, so why do I use displacement here, and not distance?
