The ball was initially in the hand and finally in the hand.

since displacement is the distance moved from its initial position, the displacement is zero.

Displacement = final height -initial height = 0-0 = 0

motion = 10 m+10 m = 20 m


Mr. Un-couth 09/08/2018.

Since you did not select 0m as best answer i'm going with (B) 20m as being the correct answer.

(B) Absolute value of displacement = 2(10m) = 20m = 2[.5(V1 + u)t1]

(D) Net value of displacement = (10 - 10)m = 0m = [.5(v1 + 0)t1] - [.5(0 + v2)t2]

But the maximum net displacement at at any given time during the ball's flight = (A) 10M

10 m up and 10 m down. 20 m.


Whome 09/08/2018.

Displacement is time dependent

The maximum displacement is 10 m halfway through the ball's flight.

When Ade catches it again, total displacement is zero.

D. 0m is probably the answer sought.

I hope this helps.

0. It ended up where it started so it hasn’t moved at all.
