Motion and rest are relative terms☛ So for a person seeing mobile from earth it is at rest.
|1||Distance is total length of the path traveled by the object under consideration when it moves from its initial position to final position.||Displacement is the shortest distance between the initial and final position of the moving object|
|2||Distance is a scalar quantity.||Displacement is a vector quantity.|
|3||Distance traveled by an object is always positive||Displacement of an object can be negative, positive or zero depending on the reference point.|
|4||Distance between two given points may be same or different. It depends on the path chosen in going from initial point to final point.||Displacement between two given points is always same.|
|5||Its value can never be less than the value of displacement||It can either be equal to or less than the distance traveled.|
|6||It is denoted by d||It is denoted by s|
|7||SI unit is meter (m)||SI unit is meter (m)|
