There are two more terms I need: "displacement" and "derived quantity". I know what displacement is but can't find a good definition for it, and I do not know what derived quantity is. If you can give me a definition or a link to a definition, that would be great. Thanks. :)

    displacement is the difference of the initial position and final position.

    derived quantity:

    We know force is in newtons, mass in kilograms, and acceleration is in meters/sec^2

    and we know that F=ma
    so
    1Newton=kg*m/s^2
    the right is a "derived" quantity for the Newton
