CLMECH-P7WW6L

A displacement vector can express the difference in position between two points in space, or the vector pointing from point A to point B.

The vector pointing from point (1,7,2) to (4,3,4) is
$\vec{D}=$

$\hat{i} + $

$\hat{j} + $

$\hat{k}$
where ($\hat{i}$, $\hat{j}$, and $\hat{k}$ are the unit vectors in the x, y, and z directions).
