1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A particle's position is described by x=2t^3-4t-5 Find its a) displacement b) distance from t=0 to t=5 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution Displacement, plug in x(5)-x(0) = 230m Distance, shouldn't it be the same thing plug in and get 230m? But book says 234m. No idea how this came about.
