Ch01 scalars and vectors

  1. 1. Introduction and Mathematical Concepts Chapter 1
  2. 2. 1.5 Scalars and Vectors A scalar quantity is one that can be described by a single number: temperature, speed, mass A vector quantity deals inherently with both magnitude and direction: velocity, force, displacement
  3. 3. 1.5 Scalars and Vectors By convention, the length of a vector arrow is proportional to the magnitude of the vector. 8 lb 4 lb Arrows are used to represent vectors. The direction of the arrow gives the direction of the vector.
  4. 4. 1.5 Scalars and Vectors
  5. 5. 1.6 Vector Addition and Subtraction Often it is necessary to add one vector to another.
  6. 6. 1.6 Vector Addition and Subtraction 5 m 3 m 8 m
  7. 7. 1.6 Vector Addition and Subtraction
  8. 8. 1.6 Vector Addition and Subtraction 2.00 m 6.00 m
  9. 9. 1.6 Vector Addition and Subtraction 2.00 m 6.00 m R
  10. 10. 1.6 Vector Addition and Subtraction 2.00 m 6.00 m 6.32 m
  11. 11. 1.6 Vector Addition and Subtraction When a vector is multiplied by -1, the magnitude of the vector remains the same, but the direction of the vector is reversed.
  12. 12. 1.6 Vector Addition and Subtraction
  13. 13. 1.7 The Components of a Vector
  14. 14. 1.7 The Components of a Vector
  15. 15. 1.7 The Components of a Vector It is often easier to work with the scalar components rather than the vector components.
  16. 16. 1.7 The Components of a Vector Example A displacement vector has a magnitude of 175 m and points at an angle of 50.0 degrees relative to the x axis. Find the x and y components of this vector.
