Vectors
Appendix C
Vectors and Scalars
A vector is a directional quantity. Both
scalar and vectors have magnitude.
Adding Vectors
Vectors should be only added in the same
direction, i.e., the horizontal (x) or vertical
(y) directions.

Momentum and Energy

Momentum
Momentum
Momentum means inertia in motion.
Momentum = Mass of object x its velocity
(mom. = m x v)
Momentum is a form of energy you can
not destroy it, but you can change its form
(velocity).
