Neha travels 4m towards North, 3m towards east and then 8m towards South. Find her Displacement and distance covered. Please give reasons for your answers



Distance : the path covered by the object is called as distance.so, we should add the given distances
4m + 3m + 8m= 15 m is the distance.
displacement : the line joining the starting point and ending point can be said as displacement.

Well, distance is length covered by an object. So 4+3+8 = 15th is distance covered. Displacement, on the other hand, is the shortest distance between any two points. So it is 5m. Therefore we can conclude dat displacement is always smaller dan or equal to distance. Hope u got ur answer ;)
