Equation for calculating average velocity from displacement and time interval?

a=dv/dt average velocity = displacement divided by time take. so average velocity = displacement/time taken.


Why is displacement different than distance?

Displacement is different than distance in that distance refers to how much ground an object has covered when in motion. Displacement is how far out of place the object is, or its overall change in position after being moved.


Does Displacement must be straight and must include direction?

Displacement is measured in a straight line from the initial to the final position and must include the direction. However, the displacement need not take place in a straight line. For example, I can start at the east-most point on a circular path of radius r metres, and walk halfway around it. My displacement would be 2*r metres due West even though I did not walk in a straight line at any stage.


Is there any example for motion which will have same distance and displacement?

Sure. If the motion is all in a straight line, then the distance and displacement are equal. ==> The Olympic 100-meter sprint is in a straight line. Distance = Displacement = 100 meters. If the direction of motion ever changes, then the distance and displacement are not equal. (I think if the direction of motion ever changes, then the distance has to be greater than the displacement.) ==> In the Indianapolis 500, Distance = 500 miles, Displacement = Zero, because the Starting line and Finish line are in the same place, so the car finishes at the same place he started at.


A bouquet is thrown upwards does the bouquet's displacement and velocity change?

The bouquet goes from one place to another, from a state of being "still" to moving. It's displacement and velocity does change.

In the term of physics is work said to be done when we walk?

If you start walking on the flat ground, then the displacement is caused at right angles to the direction of your movement. In a way, the displacement does not take place in the direction of force applied by your shoulder. Hence, no work is done.

What is the displacement of the cross-country team if they begin at the school run 10 km and finish back at the school?

The displacement would be 0 because displacement is the distance between where you start and where you end so if you end in the same place you start, your displacement is 0.

How do you measure the volume of a rock using a displacement can?

Apparatus needed: Displacement can, sinker such as rock, calibrated beaker, string to attach to rock, tripod stand ( not necessary ) or level surface. Fill displacement can with water, place on tripod stand or flat surface, at the opening or ' side shoot ' of displacement can place calibrated beaker. Dip or place the rock with string attached into water of displacement can, a volume of water will flow or fall through the opening of displacement can, into calibrated beaker. This water, known as the excess water is equivalent to that of the volume of rock, simply observe the meniscus ( of calibrated beaker) and that measure will be the volume.
