2-1 Position, Distance, and Displacement The distance is the total length of travel; if you drive from your house to the grocery store and back, you have covered a distance of 8.6 mi. Fig2-2 (show calculation)
The average speed is defined as the distance traveled divided by the time the trip took: Average speed = distance / elapsed time Is the average speed of the red car 40.0 mi/h, more than 40.0 mi/h, or less than 40.0 mi/h? (show calculation)
