an example in which there are clear distinctions among distance traveled, displacement, and magnitude of displacement. Specifically identify each quantity in your example.
Step-by-step solution Step 1 of 2 Here, north is considered as positive. Then the car is starting from initial position take as and travel +5 km and then turn around and travel 3 km to reach , therefore the displacement is 2 km north. Therefore the displacement is, Here, is final position of car, is initial position of car. Substitute 2 km for and 0 km for solve for displacement.
