## Displacement and distance problems with solutions

Problems and Solutions about distance and displacement are presented and updated useful for high school and college students. Problem (1):  An object moves from point A to B, C, and D finally, along a rectangle.  (a) Find the magnitude and direction of the displacement vector of the object? (b) Find the distance traveled by that object? (c) Suppose the object returns to point A, its initial position. Now, Find the displacement and distance?   Solution (1): (a) By definition of displacement, connect the initial (A) and final (D) points together. As shown, displacement is toward the negative of the y-axis and its magnitude is equal to the width of
