    • Identify each of the following quantities as scalar or vector. scalar vector vector (a) There are 3 people living in (e) Peter was driving at      the house just west of yours.     100 km/h for 40 minutes. vector scalar (b) The airplane flew  (f) Mike jogged six blocks       535 km/h at a bearing     west along Portage Avenue.      of 315°. vector vector scalar (c) Today we had a  (g) The boat was headed S42°E      50 km/h north wind.      across the lake. scalar vector vector (d) There are 32 (h) The tires were worn out after 120 000  scalar scalar kilometres of driving to and from work.     students in math class.
    • Vectors Vector: A quantity that has both a magnitude and a direction. 4 Notations for Writing a Vector (1) An arrow (2) Bearings: Angle is always  • length indicates magnitude. measured clockwise from North.  • tip indicates direction. Angle is always written as a three  digit number. (3) [direction] [angle] [direction] (4) [angle] [direction] of [direction]
    • 4 Notations for Writing a Vector (1) An arrow (2) Bearings: Angle is always  • length indicates magnitude. measured clockwise from North.  • tip indicates direction. Angle is always written as a three  digit number. 1cm = 10km 3cm 60° Note: All of the above examples indicate the same vector.
    • 4 Notations for Writing a Vector (3) [direction] [angle] [direction] (2) [angle] [direction] of [direction] 1cm = 10km 3cm 60° Note: All of the above examples indicate the same vector.
    • State the direction of each vector in five ways.
    • ABCD is a parallelogram with AD = DE. Each  segment in the diagram is a vector. Answer the  following questions. (a) Name a vector  (b) Name a vector that  that is equal to AD is the opposite of AB (c) Name a vector that  (d) Name a vector that is parallel  is collinear with BA to but not equal to EA or EB
    • State the magnitude and direction of each vector. scale: 1 cm = 10 m
    • State the magnitude and direction of each  vector. (You can determine the answer using ruler and protractor.)
