Displacement and Distance Travelled by a Race Car

CLMECH-VYO3I9

A race car is driving around a race track. The track consists of two straight portions and two semicircular portions. The straight portions are each 560 m long. Each semicircular portion has a radius of 220 m. At the end of 3 full laps, what will be the displacement and the distance travelled by the car?

A

$\text {displacement} = 0; \space \text {distance travelled} = 7500 \space m$

B

$\text {displacement} = 7500 \space m; \space \text {distance travelled} = 7500 \space m$

C

$\text {displacement} = 7500 \space m; \space \text {distance travelled} = 0$

D

$\text {displacement} = 0; \space \text {distance travelled} = 0 \space m$

E

$\text {displacement} = 0; \space \text {distance travelled} = 3880 \space m$

F

$\text {displacement} = 3880 \space m; \space \text {distance travelled} = 0$
