A boy starting from a point walks in a circular park of radius 35 m and comes back to the same point. Is the distance covered and displacement the same?

S safeer
  • No, here the distance covered not equal to the displacement
  • Displacement = final position - initial position

Since the final and initial position are the same the displacement = 0

  • Distance covered= total path length= circumference of the circle.

distance=2\pi r=2\times\frac{22}{7}\times35=2\times22\times5=220m

Hence total distance covered is 220m which is not equal to displacement.
