(T/F) The sum of two vectors is the resultant of the vectors.
True
False
True.
A person walks 2 miles north and then turns around and walks 3 miles south. Total time elapsed = 1 hour.
1. Distance (d) =
2. Displacement (Δx) =
3. Average Velocity (⊽) =
4. Average Speed (s) =
1. d = 2 + 3 = 5 miles
2. Δx = 2 miles (N) - 3 miles (S) = 1 mile (S)
3. ⊽ = Δx/Δt = 1 miles/1 hour = 1 mile/hr (S)
4. s - d/Δt = 5 miles/1 hour = 5 miles/hr
Average acceleration (à) =
a = Δv/Δt
For a body under constant acceleration:
1. v =
2. Δx =
3. v
