SHORT ANSWER
12. Distinguish between the displacement of a traveler who takes a train from
New York to Boston and the displacement of a traveler who flies from Boston
to New York. Be sure to compare the magnitudes of the displacements.
13. If a runner moves from a positive position to a negative position, explain if
the runner’s displacement is negative or positive.
14. Explain how a dog that has moved can have a displacement of zero.
15. Why is the direction of free-fall acceleration usually negative?
PROBLEM

17. A hiker travels south along a straight path for 1.5 h with an average speed of
0.75 km/h and then travels north for 2.5 h with an average speed of 0.90 km/h.
What is the hiker’s displacement for the total trip?
18. A skater glides off a frozen pond onto a patch of ground at a speed of 1.8 m/s.
Here she is slowed at a constant rate of 3.00 m/s2. How fast is the skater
moving when she has slid 0.37 m across the ground?
19. Human reaction time is usually about 0.20 s. If your lab partner holds a ruler
between your finger and thumb and releases it without warning, how far can
you expect the ruler to fall before you catch it? (Disregard air resistance. a g 9.81 m/s2.)
20. A pair of glasses are dropped from the top of a 32.0 m high stadium. A pen is
dropped 2.00 s later. How high above the ground is the pen when the glasses
hit the ground? (Disregard air resistance. a g 9.81 m/s2.)

Although the magnitudes of the displacements are equal, the displacements are in opposite directions.
Therefore, one displacement is positive and one displacement is negative.

opposite of increasing positive position is negative displacement.
14. The dog’s initial position and its final
position are the same position.
15. Since the usual choice of coordinates
uses positive as the direction away
from Earth, the direction of free-fall
acceleration is negative because the
object accelerates toward Earth.
