0.4 Position, Distance and Displacement

READ THE TEXTBOOK SECTION BEFORE DOING ANYTHING IN THIS POST!!!!!

Since a few people did not come pick up the reading, I’ve added it at the end of this blog post.

Pre-reading question (do ONLY after reading the textbook section):

Does the odometer in your car measure position, distance or displacement? (Click “odometer” for the definition)

Video:

After reading question:
John takes his bicycle for a stroll around a neighborhood park. He travels 5.0 miles north, 25 miles south, and 10 miles southwest. What is his total distance and displacement? (Drawing a diagram will help but is not required.)
