### Transcript of Chapter 3. vectors projectiles

- 1. Two-Dimensional Motion and Vectors Chapter 3
- 2. Introduction to Vectors A scalar is a quantity that can be completely specified by its magnitude A vector is a physical quantity that has both magnitude and direction. Some examples of vector quantities are velocity, acceleration, displacement and forces. Vectors can be added graphically, but when adding vectors you must be sure that they have the same units and that the vectors describe similar quantities. The answer found by adding vectors is called the resultant.
- 3. Vector operations The magnitude and direction of the resultant of two perpendicular vectors can be calculated using the Pythagorean Theorem and the tangent function. Magnitude of vector Pythagorean Theorem Direction of vector Tangent function
- 4. Basic Vector Operations Both a magnitude and a direction must be specified for a vector quantity, in contrast to a scalar quantity which can be quantified with just a number. Any number of vector quantities of the same type (i.e., same units) can be combined by basic vector operations.
- 5. Addition of 2 Vectors
- 6. Addition of 3 Vectors

- 18. Vectors The study of vectors allows for breaking a single vector into components: the vertical component the horizontal component. By breaking a single vector into two components, or resolving it into its components, an objects motion can sometimes be described more conveniently in terms of directions, such as north to south, or up and down. vy vx vi

- 20. Projectile Motion
- 21. Projectile Motion A projectile is any object upon which the only force acting is gravity. Projectiles travel with a parabolic trajectory due to the influence of gravity, There are no horizontal forces acting upon projectiles and thus no horizontal acceleration, The horizontal velocity of a projectile is constant (never changing in value), There is a vertical acceleration caused by gravity; its value is -9.81 m/s, down. The vertical velocity of a projectile changes by 9.81 m/s each second. The horizontal motion of a projectile is independent of its vertical motion.
