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. = 1

B. ≥ 1

C. ≤ 1

D. < 1

Answer :

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.
