## Vector Approach for solving

Scalar and Vector
Quantities
Problems
Scalar Quantities : Physical quantity which defined only by magnitude. Scalar
quantities are volume, density, speed, energy, mass, time and work.
For example: Volume of the bottle is 1 litre
Mass of the car is 1700kg.
Vector Quantities: These are defined by both magnitude and direction. Vector
quantities are displacement, velocity, acceleration, force, moment and momentum.
A vector may be represented by a straight line, the length of line being
directly proportional to the magnitude of the quantity and the direction of
the line being in the same direction as the line of action of the quantity.
An arrow is used to denote the sense of the vector, that is, for a
horizontal vector,
say, whether it acts from left to right or vice-versa.
Force: Action of one body on another; characterized by
its point of application, magnitude, line of action, and
sense

## Fundamental Principles of Mechanics

particle is zero, the particle will remain at rest or
continue to move in a straight line.

Equilibrium of a Particle
When the resultant of all forces acting on a particle is zero, the particle is
in equilibrium.
Newtons First Law: If the resultant force on a particle is zero, the particle will
remain at rest or will continue at constant speed in a straight line.

## Particle acted upon by

two forces:
- equal magnitude
- same line of action
- opposite sense
