# Vectors vs Scalars

### Physics Variables - Scalars and Vectors - Clear Lake High School - Berger

What is the definition of Acceleration? “how quickly is velocity changing” = rate of change in velocity (m/s^2)
What is the definition of Velocity? “how fast” = rate of change in position (m/s)
What is the definition of Displacement? “how far” = change in position (meters)
Distance: (identify as vector or scalar; give units) scalar - meters
Displacement: (identify as vector or scalar; give units) vector - meters
Velocity: (identify as vector or scalar; give units) vector - m/s
Speed: (identify as vector or scalar; give units) scalar - m/s
Acceleration: (identify as vector or scalar; give units) vector - m/s^2
Time: (identify as vector or scalar; give units) scalar - seconds
Mass: (identify as vector or scalar; give units) scalar - kilograms
Energy: (identify as vector or scalar; give units) scalar - joules
Power: (identify as vector or scalar; give units) scalar - watts
Temperature: (identify as vector or scalar; give units) scalar - kelvin
Area: (identify as vector or scalar; give units) scalar - m^2
Volume: (identify as vector or scalar; give units) scalar - m^3
Force: (identify as vector or scalar; give units) vector - newtons
1 centimeter = __________ meters 1 cm = .01 m and 1 m = 100 cm
1 kilogram = __________ grams 1 kg = 1000 g and 1 g = .001 kg
1 millimeter = __________ meters 1 mm = .001 m and 1 m = 1000 mm
The slope of the Position vs time graph is called the ____________ "velocity"
The slope of the Velocity vs time graph is called the ____________ "acceleration"
If acceleration is zero then the velocity is ________________. ___ then the velocity is constant.
If velocity is constant then the acceleration is ________________. ___ then the acceleration is zero.

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

• SPACEBAR - flip the current card
• LEFT ARROW - move card to the Don't know pile
• RIGHT ARROW - move card to Know pile
• BACKSPACE - undo the previous action

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
