Previous: Vector velocity and vector
An object moving in 3 dimensions with constant velocity possesses
a vector displacement of the form

(61) 
where the constant vector is the displacement at time . Note
that
and
, as expected.
As illustrated in Fig. 14, the object's trajectory is a straightline
which passes through point at time and runs parallel to vector
.
