    Could someone assist me with the following question: A car travels 22.2 m/s north for 30.4 minutes and then reverses direction and travels 28.0 m/s for 14.5 minutes. What is the car's total displacement?

      The definition of displacement is the change of position. So the car first traveled 40492.8 meters North. Then the car traveled 24360 meters South. So 40492.8 - 24360 = 16132.8 meters North
