• ### Scalar and vector quantities

1. 1. SCALAR AND VECTOR QUANTITIES RAPHAEL V. PEREZ, CpE
2. 2. SCALAR AND VECTOR QUANTITIES Define Scalar and Vector
3. 3. SCALAR QUANTITY has only magnitude. (Only the measure / quantity) VECTOR QUANTITY has both magnitude and direction.
4. 4. SCALAR VECTOR distance displacement work power acceleration volume pressure velocity speed weight mass force resistance
5. 5. SCALAR AND VECTOR QUANTITIES WHAT IS RESULTANT VECTOR?
6. 6. RESULTANT VECTOR is the is the vector that 'results' from adding two or more vectors together. -1 -0.5 0.5 1 1.5 2 2.5 3 3.5 4 4.5 5 5.5 6 6.5 0.5 1 1.5 2 2.5 3 3.5 4 y
7. 7. The goal of this topic is to find the MAGNITUDE OF THE RESULTANT VECTOR (R), and the VECTOR ANGLE (θ)
8. 8. THERE ARE THREE TECHNIQUES TO FIND THE RESULTANT VECTOR AND THE VECTOR ANGLE: 1. GRAPHICAL METHOD – you need the technical tools like sharp pencil, ruler, protractor and the paper (graphing or bond) to show the vectors graphically. The output is the connection of vectors is like a polygon.
9. 9. R ɵ
10. 10. SAMPLE PROBLEM 1. A man walks at40 meters East and 30 meters North. Find the magnitude of resultant displacement and its vector angle. Use Graphical Method.
11. 11. Solution: Write the given facts Given: A = 40 meters East B = 30 meters North R = ? θ = ?
13. 13. graph the vectors from the origin (head to tail) NOTE: 1 GRID = 10 METERS B=30METERS, NORTH A = 40 METERS, EAST USE RULER TO MEASURE AND TO DRAW A LINE θ = 37 N of E
14. 14. SAMPLE PROBLEM 2. Given: A = 5 km ,East B = 6 km, NE C = 7 km, 30˚ N of W R = ? θ = ?
15. 15. graph the vectors from the origin (head to tail) NOTE: 1 GRID = 10 km POSSIBLE GRAPH 2. Given: A = 5 km ,East B = 6 km, NE C = 7 km, 30˚ N of W R = ? θ = ?
16. 16. ASSIGNMENT Use graphical Method to find the magnitude of the resultant displacement and the vector angle 1. Given: A= 13cm, 30 N of E B= 20 cm, North R = ? θ = ? 2. Given: M= 5.7 cm, NW N= 2.5 cm, SE O= 1.3 cm, NE R = ? θ = ?
17. 17. 2. The Pythagorean Theorem The Pythagorean theorem is a useful method for determining the result of adding two (and only two) vectors that make a right angle to each other. The method is not applicable for adding more than two vectors or for adding vectors that are not at 90- degrees to each other. The Pythagorean theorem is a mathematical equation that relates the length of the sides of a right triangle to the length of the hypotenuse of a right triangle.
18. 18. SAMPLE PROBLEM 1. A man walks at 40 meters East and 30 meters North. Find the magnitude of resultant displacement and its vector angle. Use Pythagorean Theorem.
19. 19. B=30METERS,NORTH A = 40 METERS, EAST sketch your problem θ

26. 26. 3. ANALYTICAL (COMPONENT) METHOD Each vector has two components : the x-component and the y-component If the vectors are in secondary directions : (NW, NE, SW or SE directions) Ax = A cos θx Ay = A sin θx where: A = the given vector value θx = the given angle from x -axis Ax = the x – component of vector A Ay = y – component of vector A
27. 27. Component formula for x and y: Ax = A cos θx Ay = A sin θx Sum of x and y Components:
28. 28. Consider the sign conventions for the Sum of x and y Components Quadrant of Magnitude + + I - + II - - III + - IV 0 Y-axis (North or South) 0 X- axis (West or East)
29. 29. About the vector angle: Recall it from Trigonometry: if θx is positive: rotation of magnitude is counterclockwise from x-axis if θx is negative: rotation of magnitude is clockwise from x-axis
30. 30. Recall the SAMPLE PROBLEM Given: A = 5 km ,East B = 6 km, NE C = 7 km, 30˚ N of W R = ? θ = ?

Therefore, the direction of the magnitude of resultant vector is in QUADRANT I
