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.

• Physics -

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

• Physics -

Distance 10 m/s and displacement : 9 m/s

• Physics -

Actualy the distance is speed x time

• Physics -

That is ok, except for distance and displacement. distance is 5*60sec*10m/s=3000m. Displacement you have no idea because of the curves.
