Science

A runner compels one lap around a 300-m oval track, returning to her staring position. What distance does she cover, and what was her displacement? Explain.

asked by Gianna
  1. She traveled 300 meters; the displacement is zzero. The displacement is the difference between where she started and where she ended.
