Physics

Identify which of the following statements is true?


ANSWER

Displacement is a vector and distance is scalar.


SOLUTION
Displacement has both magnitude as well as direction, thus it is a vector quantity.
Whereas distance has only magnitude but no direction. Thus it is a scalar quantity.

Q2 Single Correct Medium
The number of particles crossing a unit area perpendicular to the x-axis in a unit area perpendicular to the $$x - axis$$ in a unit time is given by $$n= -D\left(\dfrac{n_2 - n_1}{x_2 - x_1}\right)$$, where $$n_1$$ and $$n_2$$ are the number of particles per unit volume at $$x = x_1$$ and $$x = x_2$$, respectively, and D is the diffusion constant. The dimensions of D are
  • A. $$[M^0LT^{-2}]$$
  • B. $$[M^0L^2T^{-4}]$$
  • C. $$[M^0L^2T^{-2}]$$
  • D. $$[M^0L^2T^{-1}]$$
