A bird flies from northern Alberta to northern Saskatchewan. The displacement is [E 7.5° S]. Then it flies to Big Quill Lake, displacement?
displacement 400km [E 51° S]. The total time of flight is 18h.
Find total displacement and total distance traveled.
Find the average speed and average velocity.
How do I find distance from displacement?
Big Quill Lake is also in Saskatchewan.
For the first flight the bird makes, the displacement is 800km [E 7.5° S]

You draw all the displacements made end-to-end and you find how far the final position is from the initial position to find displacement.
The total distance traveled, is, unsurprisingly, the sum of the distances traveled.
In [E 7.5° S], the distance is missing.
