## How do you set the length of a line in Solidworks?

To change the length of the line, select one of the endpoints and drag to lengthen or shorten the line. To move the line, select the line and drag the line to another position. To change the angle of a line, select an endpoint and drag to a different angle.

## How do you find the length of a path?

In a graph, a path is a sequence of nodes in which each node is connected by an edge to the next. The path length corresponds to the number of edges in the path. For example, in the network above the paths between A and F are: ACDF, ACEF, ABCDF, ABCEF, with path lengths 3,3,4,4 respectively.

## What is path length difference?

(Note the path difference or PD is the difference in distance traveled by the two waves from their respective sources to a given point on the pattern.) For point A on the first antinodal line (m =1), the path difference is equivalent to 1 wavelength.

## What is meant by path length?

The path length is a scalar quantity that is the distance travelled by an object. A path length can never be zero or negative for a moving object.

## What is the difference between path length and displacement?

The distance traveled by the body is known as the path length. Whereas the change in position, that is the difference between the initial and final positions of the body is called its displacement.
