Answer:

11.025 metres

Explanation:

Given that an egg is dropped from a treehouse and takes 1.5 seconds to reach the ground,

Since the egg is dropped from a height h, the initial velocity U = 0

Using the second equation of motion

h = Ut + 1/2gt^2

Substitute t into the formula

h = 1/2 × 9.8 × 1.5^2

h = 11.025 m

The eggs displacement is the distance covered in a specific direction.

The displacement = height h

Displacement = 11.025m

Therefore the eggs displacement is 11.025 metres
