A body travels a distance of 3 km towards East, then 4 km towards North and finally 9 km towards East.
What is the resultant displacement ?
The body travels a total distance of 12 km east, which means towards the x-axis, on a Cartesian plane. It travels a distance of 4 km in north direction, which means towards y-axis.
Resultant displacement :
= `sqrt(144 + 16)`
= 12.65 km
