I have a group of questions requarding magnitude of displacement and total distance traveled. What is magnitude measured in? Is is unitless? If the magnitude is 1 then in one second is the distance traveled 1? Can the Magnitude of the displacement be greater than the total distance traveled? and can displacement and total distance traveled be negative? Thanks(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
