Magnitude of Displacement

A garden has a circular path of radius 50 m. John starts at the easternmost point on this path, then walks counterclockwise around the path until he is at its southernmost point.

What is the magnitude of John’s displacement?

50² + 50² = x²
2500 + 2500 = x²
x = 70.74


What is the direction of John’s displacement?

South West
