Tips of distance -

Distance is a scalar quantity.

It is always positive.

S.I. Unit meter (m).

Dimension

Distance is depend on path followed by body .

- wherein

Displacement along circle is zero(0).

Semi circle

momentum remains conserved

where u - initial velocity of man

(negative sign shows that man moves upward)

Time taken by the stone

Distance moved by the man =

Distance of the man above floor = 10 + 0.1 = 10.1 mt
