Eliza Maknojia PHYS 1401 Lab 2: Kinematics in One Dimension Distance is the length travelled by an object, while displacement is the difference between initial and final position of an object. Therefore, distance can have the same value as displacement but not always since distance does not consider the direction of motion, while displacement does. This makes distance a scalar quantity while displacement is vector. Displacement can never have a larger value than distance. The velocity of each ball measured in

Unformatted text preview: 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. Eliza Maknojia PHYS 1401 Lab 3: Vectors in 2-D When doing vector addition all the methods used should yield in the same resultant vectors. Calculations using trigonometric functions are the most accurate method for making this determination...
