Shortest distance between initial and end point is called displacement. Distance is the total path length.

Displacement is vector and it may be positive or negative whereas Distance is scalar and it can never be negative.

Distance can be equal or greater than displacement which means ratio of displacement to distance is always equal to or less than 1.
