Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0d because displacement is 'the difference between the path of the initial and final position covered by a moving object'

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in this question the distance and displacement is the same, as the opposite direction can be said equal to as northsouth direction. The two cars covers distance of d in an hour. Therefore the displacement will be d for each for the car assuming the initial position is same.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in this question the distance covered in one hour is d ,but since they are in the opposite direction, the displacement of one car is the negative of the other .they cancel each other out and the total displacement is 0.
