## Displacement and Vectors

1. How are distance and displacement the same? How are they different?

Answer: Distance and displacement are usd to indicate the length between two points. They are
measured in meters. Distance is a scalar quantity that refers to "how much ground an object has
covered" during its motion while displacement is a vector quantity that refers to "how far out of place an
object is"; it is the object's overall change in position.

2.How are scalars and vectors the same? How are they different?

Answer: Scalar and vector are both quantities and they also described by a magnitude. Scalar quantity
refers to the quantity, which has only magnitude and no direction, while vector quantity implies the
physical quantity which comprises of both magnitude and direction.

## h. Scalar - the temperature is –5 °C

4. You drive 50 km east, then turn around and drive 20 km west. What is your displacement?

## 5. What is the difference between speed and velocity?

Answer: Speed is the distance traveled by an object where as, velocity is distance traveled by an object
per unit time in particular direction. Speed is a scalar quantity where as velocity is a vector quantity.
