**Reiny**, Sunday, November 18, 2007 at 10:27pmFor the displacement I got the same answer.

For the total distance traveled, you have to find the length of the curve.

This topic is not usually taught in highschool Calculus, what country are you in?

Here is a link you can use as an example for your problem.
