Substitute for and for . the following for path C 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) The distance is the total length of the path from the starting point to end point of the journey. It begins from and travels straight to , then it returns to and finally it ended at . Therefore, the distance along the path C is, Comments (3) Step 3 of 7 Hence, the distance for path C is . Comment 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, is the initial position and is the final position. Comment
