A runner runs around a circular track with a radius of 50m.if he runs half way round the track from a to b.am i correct if i say his distance is 100m?

• Physics -

No, not if he ran around the track half way.

half way around a circle is radius*PI

• Physics -

C = 2pi*r = 6.28 * 50 = 314m/rev = The
Crcumference = The distance around the track.

d = 1/2 * 314m = 157m.
