#### Find the following for path B in Figure 3.52:

#### (a) the total distance traveled, and

#### (b) the magnitude and direction of the displacement from start to finish.

**Solution:**

**Part A**

So, the total distance traveled on path B as shown by the red line is just the sum of the distances.

**Part B**

The displacement is just the shortest distance from the beginning to the end of the path. The displacement has a magnitude given by

The direction of the displacement is given by
