Will distance and displacement be equal always? Explain.

The displacement does not depend on the path of the object. An object can move from position A to position B following different paths. But its displacement will be from A towards B. The minimum distance between A and B, that is, in this case, the linear distance AB is the magnitude of displacements. So, distance and displacement are not always equal.
