Can distance travelled by an object in motion be negative?
Asked by Dcroyalrajput2565 | 3rd Jun, 2018, 10:47: AM
Distance can never be negative and distance travelled never decreases. While displacement can be negative, positive or zero as displacement is change in position with respect to the original position of an object. As displacement is the vector quantity it depends upon magitude as well as direction. So the negative and positive sign along with the magnitude of displacement indicates the direction of the motion of the object.

- What is motion
- l want answers for this
- what is vector
- an object has moved through a distance can it have 0 displacement? if yes, support your answer with example
- what is rest
- Which object has more inertia and why? A moving car or a stationary ship
- what is motion
- derive mathematically the first equation of motion V=u+at
- "Most Motions are complex ". Give reason.
- give examples of positive, negative and zero displacement by drawing a suitable diagram
