Question 1

An object has moved through a distance. Can it have zero displacement? If yes, support your answer with an example.


Yes. An object that has moved through a distance can have zero displacement. 

Example: If an object moves from point A and reaches to the same point A.

In this case, the total distance covered by the man is 20 m + 20 m + 20 m

+ 20 m = 80 m. Hence, his displacement is zero because the shortest distance between his initial and final position is zero.
