What is a scalar? A scalar is a quantity that is fully described by a magnitude only. It is described by just a single number. Some examples of scalar quantities include speed, volume, mass, temperature, power, energy, and time. What is a vector? A vector is a quantity that has both a magnitude and a direction. Vector quantities are important in the study of motion. Some examples of vector quantities include force, velocity, acceleration, displacement, and momentum.
In this introductory Physics Frisbee Lab by Hoop There It Is, students must distinguish between scalars and vectors and communicate using Physics vocabulary (frame of reference, distance, displacement, speed, velocity). Students measure and record distance, displacement, and time in order to calculate the average velocity of the Frisbee in each trial.
Two-Dimensional Motion Physics Problems - Full Video Walkthroughs Learn to calculate two-dimensional motion using the equation v=d/t and vectors. All solutions are fully worked and easy to understand. Use in your lesson or share with your students for extra practice.
