Q1) A object has move through a distance. Can it have a zero displacement? Support your answer.
Q2) A farmer moves along the boundary of the square feild of side 10m in 40 seconds. What will be the magnitude of displacement of the famer at the end of 2 minute 20 seconds from its initial position.

Yes, A object has move through a distance can have a zero displacement.
Dispalcement is the shortest distance travelled by an object between the initial and final positions along a certain direction.
Suppose an object is thrown vertically upwards, it reaches to maximum height say 'h' and it come back to the point from where it has thrown.
Then the displacement of the object is zero but the distance travelled will not be zero.
Note: Kindly ask other question as a separate query.

- give examples of positive, negative and zero displacement by drawing a suitable diagram
- Why pressure is scalar whereas momentum is vector Quantity
- A cyclist travels a distance of 4 km from P and Q and then moves a distance of 3 km at right angle to PQ. Find his resultant displacement graphically.
- What is scalar quantity
- A particle is moving in a circle of diameter 5m. Calculate the distance covered and the displacement when it competes 3 revolutions.
