For this first series of lessons we are going to imagine that anything in our world can be
considered a particle. Particles are especially interesting to us because they make problems
easier to solve, since

1 Multiplying a Vector by a Scalar
Multiplying a vector by a scalar is multiplying each component of the vector by the scalar.
The result will be another vector whose magnitude is larger or smaller than the original
vector, but

Lesson 1: Vectors Part 1
In physics we work with different types of quantities. Some of these quantities require only
a single value to be specified, for example the mass of a car or the walking distance to the
store. We can say that the mass of a car p
