Test your knowledge with a 30-question chapter practice test
Scalars and Vectors: Definition and Difference

1. Scalars and Vectors: Definition and Difference

In this lesson, we will examine scalars and vectors, learn why it is important to know the difference between the two and why remembering to add a direction to many of your exam answers could be the reason you get it right or wrong.

Vector Addition (Geometric Approach): Explanation & Examples

2. Vector Addition (Geometric Approach): Explanation & Examples

After watching this video, you will be able to explain why we might need to add two vectors and, given magnitudes and directions, add two vectors using geometric methods. A short quiz will follow.

Resultants of Vectors: Definition & Calculation

3. Resultants of Vectors: Definition & Calculation

After watching this video, you will be able to explain what a resultant of a vector is and use mathematics to calculate the resultant of two vectors. A short quiz will follow.

Vector Subtraction (Geometric): Formula & Examples

4. Vector Subtraction (Geometric): Formula & Examples

After watching this lesson, you will be able to subtract vectors geometrically and give examples of how that process might be used in physics. A short quiz will follow.

How to Do Vector Operations Using Components

5. How to Do Vector Operations Using Components

After watching this lesson, you will understand how we analyze physics involving two-dimensional vectors and be able to split a vector at an angle into a vertical and horizontal component. A short quiz will follow.

Projectile Motion: Definition and Examples

6. Projectile Motion: Definition and Examples

A projectile is any object that is given an initial velocity and then follows a path determined entirely by gravity. In this lesson, we will introduce projectile motion and touch on a few key facts to keep in mind when working through these problems.

Projectile Motion Practice Problems

7. Projectile Motion Practice Problems

After watching this video lesson, you will know how to use the sets of equations that are used to solve projectile motion problems. Learn how to manipulate them to find the answer you need.
