Q. 85.0( 1 Vote )

# For the motion on a straight line path with constant acceleration the ratio of the magnitude of the displacement to the distance covered is:A. = 1B. ≥ 1C. ≤ 1D. < 1

Now, Distance = Total Path Covered

And Displacement = Shortest distance between initial and final point

So, Clearly Distance Displacement

Or, Displacement Distance

So, But Distance = Displacement is valid only on a straight line path where direction does not change.

Hence option A is correct.
