Activity: Displacement and velocity

IB Physics: Activity: Displacement and velocity

This activity uses simulations that can be used at home.If a body travels from A to B along the path shown it"s distance travelled is 15 m but its displacement is 10 m East. Distance is a scalar, displacement is a vector.The actual value is 1.8 ms-1You have seen that plotting a graph of experimental results helps us to interpret the data more easily than simply looking at a table of numbers. To plot a displacement time...
