Three girls skating on a circular ice ground of radius 200 m start from a point P on the edge of the ground and reach a point Q diametrically opposite to P following
different paths as shown in given figure. What is the magnitude of the displacement vector for each? For which girl is this equal to the actual length of path skate?

Solution :-

The distance between the initial and the final position of the particle is called the displacement. All the three girls reach from point P to Q. The diameter of the ground is the magnitude of displacement.

Radius = 200 m

Diameter = 200 x 2 = 400 m

Hence, the magnitude of displacement is 400 m for each girl. This magnitude is equal to the path skated by girl B.
