Problem 4PE

the following for path D 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-by-step solution Step 1 of 5 Refer the figure 2.59 provided in the textbook. Step 2 of 5 (a) The distance is the total length of the path from the starting point to end point of the journey. The journey begins from and travels straight to and finally it ended at . Therefore, the distance along the path D is, Hence, the distance for path D is Comment Step 3 of 5 (b) The magnitude of displacement is the shortest distance between the starting point and finishing point of the journey. Here is the total distance traveled, is the initial position and is the final position. The magnitude of displacement for path D is, Therefore, the magnitude of displacement for path D is Comment
