Nora rides a bicycle for 5 min on a curvy road at a constant speeed of 10 m/s . Describe noras ride in terms of position, velocity, and acceleration, compare the distance she rides and her displacement.
I will be happy to critique your thinkng.
Ok, her position changed over time since the road is curved.
The velocity changed since the direction is changing
AccelerTion: theres a change in velocity since the direction changes
Direction: changed over time
Displacement : difference between 1st and final position
Distance 10 m/s and displacement : 9 m/s
Actualy the distance is speed x time
That is ok, except for distance and displacement. distance is 5*60sec*10m/s=3000m. Displacement you have no idea because of the curves.
