Speed is a scalar, Velocity is a vector.
We will deal with velocity.

Position and Displacement
Consider a particle moving in a straight line.
The change in position of the particle in a given
time is the displacement (s).
Change in position means the final position minus
initial position.

Displacement and Velocity
Displacement in time t is s. Displacement in time
t+Δt is s+Δs. Hence in time interval Δt the
displacement is Δs.

Δs = s′ − s
