CAN YOU EXPLAIN THE MAGNITUDE OF DISPLACEMENT
Asked by pranjal | 19th May, 2016, 10:41: PM
The magnitude of dispalcement of a particle in motion for a given time is the shortest distance between the initial and final position of the particle in that time.
The magnitude is always less than or equal to the distance travelled by an object.That is total path length is greater than the magnitude of displacement.
If the motion of the particle is in one dimension i.e., along along a straight line, then the magnitude of displacement is equal to the total path lenght travelled by the object in the given time.

- An object moves 9 m in first 3 sec, 11 m in next 3 sec, and 7 in last 3 sec. What is its average speed?
- a body travels along a circular path of radius 70 me after travelling half a revolution in 20 seconds find the average speed and average velocity
- an object level 18 metre in 4 seconds and next 18 metre into second calculate average speed of the object
- A body is moving with a velocity of 10 m/s .if the motion is uniform what will be the velocity after 10s
- an aeroplane files 200km with a uniform speed of 300 km per hour and then another 200km with a uniform speed of 240 km per hour calculate the average speed of aeroplane
- Two trains A and B start moving at the same time. The distance travelled by them in given intervals of time are given below. Plot the Distance- time graph for the motion of two trains. State which train has uniform motion and which train has non- Uniform motion. Also Plot Speed- time graph after calculating the speed of the two trains at different time intervals.
- The distance between Delhi and Agra is 200 km A train travels the first hundred kilometres at a speed of 50 km per hour how fast must the train travel the next hundred kilometres so as to average 70 km per hour for the whole journey In this why can't we use the formula Average speed = initial speed + final speed / 2
- A bus travels first 20 km in 1h, next 20 km in half an hour and next 20 km in 1h. Calculate the average speed of the bus
- An object moves on a circular path and it's centre is taken as the reference point. As compared to the reference point what can we say about- A) The position of the moving object. B) The director the moving object. Give reasons too.
- draw a diagram to show the motion of a body whose speed remained the constant but velocity constitution change
