Unformatted text preview: displacement does. This makes distance a scalar quantity while displacement is a vector. Displacement can never have a larger value than distance. The velocity of each ball measured in this lab was average velocity. The acceleration for each ball is different, this is due to the objects mass and its acceleration due to gravity. As the balls mass increases the acceleration, on average, increases as well. In the end when learning about kinematics in one dimension, the concepts were understood clearly however errors in measurement and timing may have occurred....
