We will be expanding upon this vocabulary list with words such as distance displacement speed velocity and acceleration. As we will soon see these words are vectorociated with mathematical quanvectories that have strict definitions. The mathematical quanvectories that are used to describe the motion of objects can be divided into two categories. The quanvectory is either a vector or a scalar. These kms can be either a vector or a scalar quanvectory. It is a unit of speed which is scalar but if this speed is in a specific direction thereby becoming velocity it is vector.08.04.2008 Speed is a scalar because it only has a magnitude and not a direction (30mph). Whereas velocity would be a vector as we have a direction as well as the magnitude (30mph north-east).Status OffenAntworten 6

For instance the measurement of speed in miles or kilometers-per-hour or the measurement of the temperature of the medium both remain scalar quanvectories as long as they arent vectorociated with the direction of the mediums travel.Example questions Is it a scalar or a vector 1) The football player was running 10 miles an hour towards the end zone. This is a vector because it represents a magnitude (10 11.01.2015 1. The problem statement all variables and givenknown data I am a teacher currently teaching very introductory physics. I just came across a test question asking the students to choose whether acceleration is vector or scalar.

Vector vs. Scalar Averaging of Wind Data. The wind is described as having both a direction and a magnitude (speed) and it is therefore a vector quanvectory.
