###### Asked in Science

### When displacement have the opposite derection what do you do to determine the magnitude?

Displacement is a vector quantity.
Hence, while finding resultant vector we need to use vector
algebra and the properties of vectors.
If the 2 displacement vectore are in opposite directions,it
means that the angle between them is 180degrees and hence we can
directly subtract them.
