# Give an example of situation in which distance is equal to

displacement.

Answer :

A man climbing a ladder

Explanation:

Distance is a scalar quantity (it has magnitude only) while displacement is a vector quantity (it has magnitude and direction both)

Hence if we take any example considering a motion in which direction does not change throughout the motion and we will always get

Distance = Displacement.
