@Shalante Can you help me please?
displacement is equivalent to distance one lap is the perimeter of the circle= circumference = 2 * pi* r 1/2 lap = 1/2 * 2 * pi* r and r is the radius 150
Ok, I see how that is, but that is describing the distance. My book says displacement is the straight-line distance between two points. Would that mean I double the radius because it would be equal to the diameter?
What does that mean?
@hero do you mind helping?
displacement is how far you are from the place you started. not how far you have traveled to get there.
So would I just double the radius because the car went half the circle?
So, to be clear, the displacement would be 300m?
thats the way it looks to me yes, the car is 2 radiuses from where it started
Thank you! Do you know what it means by the magnitude of displacement?
magnitude is the measure of the displacement
as opposed to the direction of the displacment
Oooohhh. That makes a lot more sense now. Thanks!
consider displacement as a vector, it has both length and direction ...
stand corrected does this mean we are not dealing with vectors?
we are dealing with a vector, but just the magnitude of it
That makes sense to me now. I have some more questions. Could you help me with them? I am taking an advanced physics class and my teacher never explained any of this, she just assigned the homework, so I am not always sure if I am on the right track.
@amistre64 thank you for your support
physics isnt my strong point, i just know some basic stuff. ask and we can see if i can help ... if not there are others
Ok, great. I will start a new question.
k, and triciaal is a smart cookie ... her insight is good for the most part ;)
did advanced physics, chemistry and math but that was a long, long, long time ago
