### What is greater distance or displacement?

Distance is greater , because displacement can be zero ,but, distance cannot be zero.

### Can the distance between two points be zero?

Yes, the x-distance, y-distance, z-distance, or any combination of the three between any two points may be zero Not possible. If the distance between two points is zero then the points are the same.

### What is the distance a number is from zero?

It's called the absolute value. For example, the distance '3' is from zero is 3. However the distance -3 is from zero is also 3. The absolute value of -3 is 3.

### What is the distance that a number is from zero on a number line?

It is the magnitude or absolute value of the number.

### What is the distance a number is from zero on a number line called?

the number from zero (the distance) is called incounting numbers

### Does a horizontal line on a distance time graph show constant speed?

No. It shows zero speed. Velocity is distance/unit time. The slope of the line shows change in distance / change in time. Since distance never changes as time changes, the change in distance is zero. Alternatively, the slope of a horizontal line is zero. If zero speed is considered "constant", then yes, it does show constant speed but the speed is zero.

### Is it possible to do work on an object that remains the rest?

No. Work = distance x force. If distance is zero, the product is also zero.

### Give an example where displacement is zero but distance is not?

when the body moves circularly from a point 'A' to a then the displacement will be zero(displacement is the shortest diatance from the initial point to final point) and the distance will not be zero.

### When is the earths gravational pull zero?

It is never zero. It may get weaker with distance but it is never zero.

### Can a displacement from one point to another be zero yet the distance involved moving this points be zero?

It the displacement between two points is zero then they are the same point and so the distance involved in moving between the points can be zero.

### Explain that can displacement be zero even if distance is not equal to zero?

If the distance is measured from a point other than the initial position of the object.

### What do you call the distance between a number and zero on a number line?

The absolute value is the distance between a number and zero on a number line.

### Why is no work being done on books on shelf physics?

Work = force x distance. With a distance of zero, the work will also be zero.

### What is the position of zero force if a positive and negative charges are separated by a distance?

The position of zero force if positive and negative charges are separated by a distance would be at half of the separation distance.

### What is the distance an integer is from zero?

The number itself tells you the distance from zero. So the integer "15" is 15 units from zero. Same goes for the integer –15, just on the other side.

### Can distance be zero even when displacement is not zero?

No. Distance can be greater than displacement, but not less. The magnitude of the displacement between two points is also the minimum possible distance of a path between the same points. However, the displacement can be zero if the distance is not if the object's starting point and ending point are the same.

### What is the vertical distance between a wave's crest and trough?

The amplitude is the distance between the the zero position and the crest or the zero position and the trough so the vertical distance means double the amplitude.

### Can displacement be zero even if distance is non zero?

On a three dimensional basis yes it can. Fir instance, if an object is moving directly towards or away from you the angular displacement can be zero though the distance displacement changes.

### How can velocity be zero but not speed even if the object is moving with speed?

Speed is distance by time and velocity is displacement by time. If an object is moving with speed distance can never be zero but displacement can. So we say velocity can be zero.

### Is the distance-time graph for acceleration always a straight line?

-- If the distance-time graph is a straight line, then the magnitude of acceleration is zero. -- If the magnitude of acceleration is not zero, then the distance-time graph is curved.

### What are two numbers the same distance from zero on the number line?

Numbers the same distance from zero (linearly) have the same "absolute value" whether positive or negative.

### How is an absolute value on a number line?

The distance from the number to zero (or the distance from zero to the number). Ignore the fact than one measure is positive and the other negative.

### What do the distance between the zero mark and scale marks represent?

the distance between the zero mark and scale marks represent how much it weight from nothing or empty.

### What type of motion is occurring when the slope of a distance vs time graph is zero?

The slope of the distance/time graph is the speed of motion. When the slope is zero, the distance is the same value at every time. Together, they indicate that the speed is zero, and the object is sitting in the same place as time goes on.

### Is it possible workdone is zero although body is moving?

Yes, if no force is applied. Work = force x distance, so if the force is zero, no work is done. Yes, if no force is applied. Work = force x distance, so if the force is zero, no work is done. Yes, if no force is applied. Work = force x distance, so if the force is zero, no work is done. Yes, if no force is applied. Work = force x distance, so… Read More

### An object has moved though a distance can it have zero displacement it yes support your answer with an example?

http://wiki.answers.com/Q/An_object_has_moved_though_a_distance_can_it_have_zero_displacement_it_yes_support_your_answer_with_an_example" Yes If a body travel a distance S from X to Y and return to X then distance travelled is 2S but displacement is zero In a uniform circular motion, the distance travelled by a body in one revolution is 2πr but displacement is zero

### If the average velocity of an object is zero in some time interval what can you say about the displacement of the object for that interval?

the displacement is zero. Note that distance travelled would not be zero though. as velocity doesn't signify anything abt distance travelled. speed will give you what distance you travelled. Since average velocity is zero, some component is negetive some positive or no movement at all. whichever case may be, the displacement will be zero.

### What is distance that a number is from zero on a number line called?

A number's distance from zero on a number line is its magnitude or "absolute value." absolute value or magnitude. absolute value

### How will you show that the isplacment of a body can be zero but the distancecan never be zero?

Displacement is a vector quantity which refers to the distance moved with respect to a position. If the position is home, once you are home, displacement is zero. Distance is a scalar quantity which refers to the distance moved. This can be counted from the start to end. Since scalar quantity cannot go negative (it cannot drop but only rise), it can never be zero. If you moved 1 metre north then 1 metre south… Read More

### What is the shortest distance from Germany to Denmark?

Zero distance. Germany and Denmark border on each other, there is no distance between them.

### Are the same displacement and distance?

distance travel led by a particle in a given interval of time is known as displacement. displacement=distance traveled by time taken.Displacement may be zero. it is path length which a particle travels.distance should not be zero.

### At what distance does a Marine Sniper zero their scope?

Zero range will depend on the weapon and cartridge used..

### Is it possible that displasment is zero but not the distance?

Yes. If you end up where you started, your displacement is zero, but the distance you travel is the actual amount of ground covered. For example, if you made a round trip of 50 miles, your displacement would be zero miles, but your distance would be 50 miles. This is because the final position and the initial position are the same. Round trips always have a displacement of zero.

### Can an numbers absolute value be zero?

The only number whose absolute value is zero is zero. This is because a number's absolute value is its distance from zero on the number line.

### Define the term zero error of vernier calliper?

The zero error of vernier calliper is defined as :- The zero error is equal to the distance between the zero of the main scale and the zero of the vernier scale.

### How can displacement be less than the distance traveled?

Of course. If you run around a circular track one time and stop when you reach the starting line, then the distance traveled is the circumference of the track, but the displacement is zero. Displacement can be anything between zero and the distance, but it can never be more than the distance.

### The absolute value of a number is the of the number from zero?

The absolute value of a number is the distance (positive) of the number from zero.

### How do you describe the absolute value of a number?

its distance from zero, regardless of whether it's above or below zero

### What is importance of zero in number line?

The position of any number in a number line is determined by its distance from the zero.

### The scientific definition for work states that work cannot be accomplished without what?

In Physics, work is defined as (force) multiplied by (distance). According to that definition, if either force or distance is zero, then work is zero. That means that no matter how hard you push on a brick wall, no work is done, because your force acts through zero distance.

### Distance between Switzerland and Italy?

Italy shares a border with Switzerland, so the distance is zero.

### The shortest distance between two point is what?

The shortest distance between the two points is zero

### Is holding something work?

No. To have "work" (in the sense used in physics), you need a force to act along a certain distance. Any force multiplied by a zero distance will give you zero work.
