Flashcards in Distance, Displacement, Speed And Velocity Deck (3)
What is a vector quantity?
What is a scalar quantity?
A vector is a something that has a magnitude and a direction eg force velocity displacement weight acceleration.
A scalar is something that has magnitude only not a direction. Eg distance speed mass energy
What is speed and velocity?
How do you work it out?
Speed is just how fast you’re going with no regard to the direction
Velocity is speed in a given direction
Distance m = speed m/s x time s
