2 Curvilinear Motion Scalar and Vector Quantities c Scalar quantities are completely described by magnitude only. c Time, Mass: e.g. c Vector quantities need both magnitude and direction to completely describe them c Displacement, Velocity, Acceleration: e.g. c Represented by an arrow, the length of the arrow is proportional to the magnitude of the vector c Head of the arrow represents the direction c Generally printed in bold face type Properties of Vectors c Equality of two vectors c Two vectors are equal if they have the same magnitude and the same direction c Movement of vectors in a diagram c Any vector can be moved parallel to itself without being affected. i.e. its origin can be moved, but its magnitude or direction cannot be changed. c When adding vectors, their directions must be taken into account c Units must be the same
