Physics Lecture

Vectors

Plenty of measurements in physics require both magniture and direction to be accounted for. These are called vectors, and are represented as arrows.

Motion

Changes in an object's location or position over a period of time. Several measurements in motion are vectors:

  • Displacement (from starting to destination point)
  • Velocity (speed with direction)
  • Acceleration (how quickly does the velocity change?)
