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
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!
Displacement is just distance traveled and a direction. For example 40m east is a displacement distance
no. this is a displacement
The final displacement would be 3 km east of the starting point.
find the resultant of the following displacement a=20km 30south of east
Distance is nondirectional, such as ten feet, displacement is directional, such as ten feet east of my present position.

The displacement of the car is 5 km to the east.
That would be the vector sum; in this case use Pythagorean theorem as east and north are perpendicular; total displacement is sqrt of 5
5 miles minus 4 miles is 1 mile East of the starting point. Displacement is a vector quantity, so it must have magnitude and direction.
Yes. If the slope is positive, the direction of the displacement is positive (e.g. north, east, or right). If the slope is negative, the direction of the displacement is negative (e.g. south, west, or left).
46 squared + 23 squared = the resultant displacement squared. Pythagoras' theorem.
1 mile East
If Ted swam 25 m east in a lake and turned and swam 75 m east he swam 100 m total. The displacement of 50 m only takes into account his starting and ending positions, not the travel route.
a) Displacement: 4.00 blocks north + (6.00-3.00)=4.00 blocks north/ 3.00 blocks east= total displacementb) Total Distance: 3.00 + 4.00 + 6.00= 13.00 blocks
What is the displacement of a car traveling 10 km north 5km east 15 km south and 5 km north?
She has walked 23 miles, but her displacement is only 7 miles.
Petra Schersing, née Müller was an East German sprinter who was born October 18, 1965. She got a silver medal.
the part that is displaced is the tire hub.
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.
