CBSE Class 9 Answered

Can distance travelled by an object in motion be negative? 

 

Asked by Dcroyalrajput2565 | 03 Jun, 2018, 10:47: AM
Expert Answer
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.
