the following for path B in Figure 2.59: (a) The distance traveled. (b) The magnitude of the displacement from start to finish. (c) The displacement from start to finish.
Step-by-step solution Step 1 of 7 Refer the figure 2.59 provided in the textbook. Step 2 of 7 (a) Distance is the total length of path from the starting position to end position of the journey. Here is the initial position and is the final position. Step 3 of 7 Substitute for and for . Hence, the distance for the path B is Step 4 of 7 (b) The magnitude of displacement is the shortest distance between the starting point and finishing point of the journey. Here is the magnitude of displacement. Comment
