Emily travels 30 km east to visit Victoria after wards she travels 40 km north to visit star she then returns to her point or origin what was her total displacement?

Displacement (Δx) is the change in position of an object.Δx = xf - xiwhere xf is the final position and xi is the initial position or point of origin.In this case, Emily travels away from xi, but ultimately ends up back where she started, so xi = xf.Since xi = xf,xf - xi = 0.Even though she traveled a distance of 70km, the total displacement is 0.
