# Two cars starting from as same point move in opposite directions along north south such that each covers a distance x in the same time.what is the displacement of car.(1) moving towards south

Asked by arjunjoshi864 23rd February 2019, 8:31 AM
Two cars covers a equal distance in same time but in opposite directions.
We know, displacement is a vector quantity. The magnitude as well as direction has to be taken into the account.
It is given that the cars covers distance 'x' in a given time.

So, if the displacement of car A moving in North direction = + x
Then, the displacement of car B moving in south direction = - x

Thus, the displacement of car moving towards south will be ' - x' (vectors has to be written along with their sign which denotes the direction of an object moving is in opposite direction to the another object)
