If you walked 15 meters to the right and then 6 to the left what is your displacement if the origin is 0? | 9 Meters |

If you walked 6 to the right and 3 to the left what is the distance? | 9 Meters |

An object is moving for 10 seconds and went a total distance of 100 meters. What was the speed? | 10 m/s |

T/F If the velocity of an object is constant, its acceleration must be zero | True |

T/F An object can be moving for 10 seconds and still have zero displacement | True |

T/F A vector is a large quantity and a scalar is a small quantity | False |

T/F The quantity 20 m/s is a speed and such is a scalar quantity | True |
