**Find the following for path D in the figure: **

**(a) The distance traveled. **

**(b) The magnitude of the displacement from start to finish. **

**(c) The displacement from start to finish. **

**Solution:**

### Part a

The position of D started from 9 m, then went to 3 m, and then went back to 5 m. The distance traveled by D is the sum of all the paths

☚

### Part b

The magnitude of the displacement is the difference between the final position and the initial position WITHOUT regards to sign

☚

### Part c

The displacement is difference between the final position and the initial position TAKING INTO ACCOUNT the sign
