Displacement and Distance in 1 Dimension Revision Questions

1. A girl walks for 1200 m when she goes from home to school and then she turns back at home after finishing the lesson.

Which of the statements below is NOT correct?

  1. The Distance travelled by the girl during the entire process is 1200 m
  2. The Displacement of the girl during the entire process is 2400 m
  3. The Displacement of the girl during the entire process is 0
  4. The Distance travelled by the girl during the entire process is 0

Correct Answer: C

2. Which statement is CORRECT for the motion described in the figure below?

Physics Tutorials: This image shows the same horizonal grid as in image 1, 2 and 3. This grid however starts on the left at -4 and increases, left to right by a single unit upto and including position 13. Three objects are positioned on the grid. Instant 1 is at 12, instant 2 is at -4 and instant 3 is at position -2
  1. Displacement = + 2m, Distance = 18m
  2. Displacement = - 14m, Distance = 18m
  3. Displacement = - 10m, Distance = 14m
  4. Displacement = + 14m, Distance = 14m

Correct Answer: B

3. Which of the following statements is conceptually NOT correct?

  1. The Displacement of the moving object is +4 m
  2. The Displacement of the moving object is 4 m
  3. The Distance of the moving object is 4 m
  4. The Displacement of the moving object is - 4 m

Correct Answer: B
