Answer the questions in the Distance and Displacement Self-Quiz before attempting the lab quiz at the bottom of this page. If you have trouble seeing the questions in the self-quiz, try using Google Chrome, instead of Internet Explorer.

## Distance and Displacement Self-Quiz

Scroll to the top of the page and read the material BEFORE you attempt the quiz. Then, try to answer each question in the quiz.

- What is the displacement of Dr. Dry if he rides his bicycle three times around a circular track with a radius of 50 meters? Make sure you use the correct SI units and a direction if necessary. Round your answer to two decimal places.
- 942.48 meters
- Displacement is a vector quantity and therefore must have a direction. The problem statement does not give me enough information to answer the question with a direction.
- 0 meters
- 0 meters around the track
- 942.48 meters around the track

- What is the distance traveled by Dr. Dry if he rides his bicycle three times around a circular track with a radius of 50 meters? Make sure you use the correct SI units and a direction if necessary. Round your answer to two decimal places.
