Question

In which of the following cases of motions, the distance moved and the magnitude of displacement are equal ?


  1. A car moving on a straight road without turning back

  2. A car is moving on a circular track

  3. A pendulum swinging to and fro

  4. The Earth is revolving around the Sun


Solution

The correct option is A

A car moving on a straight road without turning back


If the car is moving on a straight road without turning back, the length of the actual path taken will be equal to the length of the shortest path between the initial and final positions. Hence, the magnitude of displacement and distance covered will be equal.
