Examples of scalar measurements in physics include time, temperature, speed and mass, whereas examples of vectors consist of velocity, acceleration and force. Scalars describe one-dimensional quantities that are measured... More »

The difference between scalar and vector quantities is that the former only provides numerical data or magnitude, while the latter also provides direction in addition to magnitude. Examples of scalar quantity include mas... More »

Newton's second law states that the speed of acceleration of a moving object depends on the object's mass and the force being exerted on it. One instance of this is the understanding that it requires much more force to p... More »

Examples of basketball cheers and chants include, "Dribble, pass it, lets make a basket," "Down the floor, shoot it, score" and repeating the word "defense," separating the syllables each time to make them longer. Cheers... More »

An object's acceleration is constant and downward due to the force of gravity In projectile motion, but the object's velocity reverses direction during the object's motion. This is because of the inertia described in New... More »

In physics, a projectile is an object to which some velocity is provided and is then left to move in the gravitational field under the influence of only the gravitational force. Examples of projectiles include a ball thr... More »

In physics, the three types of acceleration are changes in speed, direction and both simultaneously. The word "velocity" is often used in place of speed. A person can calculate the acceleration of an object by determinin... More »
