displacement is the measure of the distance from the starting and ending points, AND the direction.

it doesnt matter that she ran 300m total.

heres the math for displacement:

point b (the direction with the larger number) - point a(direction with the smaller number

the direction will be point b's direction.

so, plug it in.

200m west - 100m east

=100m west

^^

if u wer to draw displacement, you would not need 2 draw the 200m west or the 100m east; you would imply draw the starting point and then 100m west, and draw a straight line connecting them.

^^ hope this helps!

What is difference between displacement and distance?

Displacement is a form of distance but unlike distance it is a vector. It has both measure and direction. If I moved 10 meters east then the distance I moved would be 10 m but my displacement would be 10m East as vectors must have a direction to make sense.The distance you traveled is how far you moved, while displacement is how far from the starting point you end up.For example, you get in your car and drive two miles north, then turn around and drive five miles south. The distance you travelled is 7 miles, but your displacement is three miles because that's how far you are from your starting point.
