Step by Step Calculation

Back to Top
Step 1 :  

Displacement can be defined as shortest distance between the starting point and end point. Or it can be defined as imaginary straight path which is different from the actual path.


Formula:


Displacement Or Distance :


Δx = Va* t


Average velocity :


Va = Δx / t


Time :


t = Δx / Va



Step 2 :  

State the equation you plan to use and plug in the values.

  1. The car moving towards the place ground at average 15 m in 4 s. Calculate the displacement .


    Step 1 :  

    The given:


    Displacement Or Distance Δx = ? .


    Average velocity (Va) = 15 m/s


    Time (t) = 4 s.



    Step 2 :  

    Plug the values in the formula.


    Displacement Or Distance :


    Δx = Va* t .


    Δx = 15 * 4 .



    Answer  :  

    Δx = 60 m



  2. A man walks 16 m distance from his home in a 10 s. Calculate the average velocity .


    Step 1 :  

    The given:


    Displacement Or Distance Δx =16 m .


    Average velocity (Va) = ?


    Time (t) = 10 s.



    Step 2 :  

    Plug the values in the formula.


    Average velocity :


    Va = Δx / t


    Va = 16 / 10 .



    Answer  :  

    Va = 1.6 m/s
