*Theme/Title:
Vectors & Scalars
* Description/Instructions
In physics, mathematical quantities that can be used to describe the motion of objects can be divided into two categories: scalars and vectors. Scalars are quantities that are described by magnitude and vectors are quantities that are described by magnitude and direction.
Examples of scalars: speed, distance
Examples of vectors: displacement, velocity, acceleration
10 ft is a scalar, but 10 ft NW is a vector.
For each question in the following quiz, choose whether the given quantity is a vector or a scalar. Remember that scalars have magnitude, but vectors have both a magnitude and direction. Please select the best answer from the given choices.
