Sarah is jogging 3km west. turns around runs 1 km east before she sprains her ankle.what is her displacement?
displacement is the NET distance traveled. you want to think of this in reference to the starting point. How far away from the starting point is she after running this route?if she started at point A and ran 3km west, then 1km east, she is only 2km away from her starting point A. Therefore the displacement is 2km, while the DISTANCE is 4km
