Physics and Measurement
Measurements Basic units of measure Length MeterMass Kilogram (1kg = 2.2lbs) Weight Newton (1kg = 10N) Time Second
Scalar vs. Vector Scalar VectorMeasurement that has magnitude (number) 5m Vector Measurement that has magnitude and direction 5m, east
Scalar vs. Vector Distance Displacement Measurement of lengthMeasurement of distance in a certain direction Vector measured from starting point directly to end point
Distance vs. DisplacementA person walks 2 miles North, then 4 miles East, and finally 2 miles South. Distance = 8 miles Displacement = 4 miles, East
Scalar vs. Vector Speed VelocityAmount of distance traveled in a given amount of time (m/s) Velocity Speed in a direction
Vectors For Force (weight) Ever Electric Field StrengthAt Acceleration The Torque D Displacement M Momentum V Velocity
Vector Components Vectors can be broken down into horizontal and vertical components Right Triangles H Hsinθ θ Hcosθ
Examples Find horizontal and vertical components X = Hcos θX = 20cos 30 X = 17.32m 20m Y Y = Hsin θ 30° Y = 20sin 30 X Y = 10m
Examples Find horizontal and vertical components X = Hcos θX = 4.6cos 60 4.6m X = 2.3m Y Y = Hsin θ Y = 4.6sin 60 60° Y = 3.98m X
Direction Vectors always have a direction N W E S
Direction What if you don’t know which way is north? 90° 180° 0° 270°
Standard Convention 90° 180° 0° 270°
Example A student walks 6m at 0° and then 8m at 90°. What is the resultant displacement? R 8m R= 10m, 53° θ 6m
Speed and Acceration. distance Total distance an object travels from a starting point to ending point.

Aim: How can we distinguish between a vector and scalar quantity? Do Now: What is the distance from A to B? Describe how a helicopter would know how to.
Vectors Def. A vector is a quantity that has both magnitude and direction. v is displacement vector from A to B A is the initial point, B is the terminal.
Chapter 1: Matter in Motion Motion= a change in position over time Reference point= an object that stays in place and shows us that something is moving.
Kinematics and Dynamics
Vectors Physics Book Sections Two Types of Quantities SCALAR Number with Units (MAGNITUDE or size) Quantities such as time, mass, temperature.
How Can We Describe Motion of an Object?. Scalar vs Vector Quantities Scalar – described by a magnitude (number value) alone –Example: 5m, 13 miles,
THIS MINI-LESSON WILL COVER: What is the difference between scalars and vector quantities? What is the difference between distance and displacement ?

3 Vectors in Physics 3-1 Scalars versus Vectors
Scalar and vector quantities 1 Starter Put a cross in the centre of your graph paper (landscape)and draw the following movement: (1 pace = 1 cm) From.
Ch 3 – Two-Dimensional Motion and Vectors. Scalars vs. Vectors ► Scalar – a measurement that has a magnitude (value or number) only Ex: # of students,
Vectors A vector is basically an arrow that represents the magnitude and direction of a measurement. The length of the vector represents its magnitude.
MOTION Motion: Change in position over time and is described by speed, velocity and acceleration.
Vectors in a Plane Lesson Definitions Vector: determined by direction and magnitude Polar representation: nonnegative magnitude r and direction.
Speed Velocity and Acceleration. What is the difference between speed and velocity? Speed is a measure of distance over time while velocity is a measure.
Ch 3 Vectors. Vector vs. Scalar State whether each of the following quantities is a vector or a scalar: Position AccelerationVelocity Speed Displacement.
Vectors & Scalars Chapter Notes. Vectors vs. Scalars A quantity that requires both magnitude (a numerical value) and direction is a vector Displacement,
Scalars and Vectors (a)define scalar and vector quantities and give examples. (b) draw and use a vector triangle to determine the resultant of two vectors.

General Physics Midterm Review.
Scalars & Vectors. Scalars: Measurements that have no direction The quantity is called magnitude Ex: Distance: d, time: t, mass: m Vectors: Measurements.
Vectors: Displacement and Velocity. Vectors Examples of vectors: displacement velocity acceleration.
Warm Up Isolate “q 2 ” from. Scalars Scalars are measurements Normal numbers Magnitude is a synonym Examples: 55 miles per hour 100 kg.

Vectors and Scalars Chapter 8. What is a Vector Quantity? A quantity that has both Magnitude and a Direction in space is called a Vector Quantity.
Physics VECTORS AND PROJECTILE MOTION
Physics Section 3.2 Resolve vectors into their components When a person walks up the side of a pyramid, the motion is in both the horizontal and vertical.
Kinematics – the study of the motion of objects without consideration to mass or the forces acting upon objects.
Vectors & Scalars.
Motion Notes. Key Terms 1)Motion: 2)Reference point: The state in which one object’s distance from another is changing. A place or object used for comparison.
8.1 The Language of Motion Some common words used to describe motion include: Distance Time Speed Position How would you describe the motion of the soccer.

Vectors and Scalars. Adding Vectors A B A+B A B Find B-A = -A + B A B -A-A B -A-A -A+B-A+B B-A =B-A A+(B-A)=B.
Paths in One and Two Dimensions Displacement and Distance.
8.1 The Language of Motion Some common words used to describe motion include: Some common words used to describe motion include: –Distance –Time –Speed.
All quantities in Physics can be categorized as either a scalar or a vector quantity. A scalar quantity has magnitude (amount) only without direction.
Insanely Super Important Kinematics Terms. Kinematics The study of the motion of objects- does not deal with the forces that caused the motion.

Year 10 Pathway C Mr. D. Patterson 1. Describe the concepts of distance, displacement, speed and velocity Use the formula v=s/t to calculate the unknown.
What is speed? Speed: how fast something is moving or how much distance is covered in a certain amount of time. We will discuss two types of speed: Instantaneous.
Scalars and Vectors. Definition Scalar – a quantity that has a magnitude only, no direction. * YES, scalars can have units. ** What scalars have we learned.
