The two tennis players shown in Figure walk to the net to congratulate one another. (a) Find the distance traveled and the displacement of player A. (b) Repeat for player B.
Step 1 of 2:
The two tennis players walk to the net and congratulate each other. They are at different points initially. We are going to find the distance traveled and displacement by the player A.
The distance traveled by the player A = 5 m
The displacement by the player A = 5 m and in +x direction (magnitude and direction)
