    Answer:

    Distance = 50m

    Displacement = 50m to the right

    Explanation:

    Distance is the total length of a given path. It is a scalar quantity and thus takes no consideration on the direction of the path.

    Displacement on the other hand is the change in position of an object. It is a vector quantity and takes consideration on the direction of the object.

    From the question:

    The swimmer swims half lap by moving from the left end to the right end of a pool that is 50m long.

    Distance = total length of the given path = 50m

    Displacement = change in position of the swimmer from the left end (0m) to the right end (50m) = 50 – 0 = 50m

    Since direction is important in displacement, the complete details of the displacement should be 50m to the right

    Answer:

    The distance is 50m and the displacement is also 50 m

    Explanation:

    the swimmer traveled 50m =distance

    the swimmer was now 50m away from the start=displacement
