An object moves with constant acceleration 4.60 m/s2 and over a time interval reaches a final velocity of 10.0 m/s. If its initial velocity is −5 m/s, what is its displacement during the time interval? What is the total distance travelled?
deltax=(vi)(t) + 1/2(a)(t)^2
The Attempt at a Solution
deltax= 8.14 m (displacement)
total distance travelled = 8.14 m
the answer i got for displacement is correct but the total distance travelled is wrong and i can't figure out why. can anyone help me please?
