### The graph represents that the object is

• A.

Not moving

• B.

At constant velocity

• C.

Returning to starting point

B. At constant velocity
Explanation
The graph represents that the object is at constant velocity. This is indicated by the straight, horizontal line on the graph. A straight line on a velocity-time graph indicates that the object is moving at a constant speed in a specific direction, without any changes in its velocity. Therefore, the object is not accelerating or decelerating, but maintaining a constant velocity throughout the given time period.

### Scalar quantity shows only magnitude (number and unit) and Vector quantity shows both magnitude and direction. Which of the following are vector quantities?

• A.

Distance and Speed

• B.

Displacement and Velocity

• C.

Displacement and Distance

B. Displacement and Velocity
Explanation
Displacement and velocity are vector quantities because they have both magnitude and direction. Displacement refers to the change in position of an object, and it includes both the distance and the direction of the change. Velocity, on the other hand, is the rate at which an object changes its displacement in a specific direction. Distance and speed, on the other hand, are scalar quantities because they only represent magnitude and do not include direction.

### The bus traveled 500 km east and 300 km south. What is the distance and the displacement?

• A.

800 km and 583 km SE

• B.

450 km and 835 km SE

• C.

630 km and 538 km SE

A. 800 km and 583 km SE
Explanation
The distance traveled by the bus is the sum of the distances traveled in each direction, which is 500 km + 300 km = 800 km. The displacement is the straight-line distance from the starting point to the ending point, which can be calculated using the Pythagorean theorem. The displacement is the square root of (500 km)^2 + (300 km)^2 = 583 km. The direction of the displacement can be determined as southeast (SE) based on the relative positions of the starting and ending points.

Rate this question:

• 24.

### Jermaine runs 3 laps around a 400 meter track. Why is displacement equal to 0?

• A.

Because the end point is the same as the starting point.

• B.

Because he runs very fast.

• C.

Because the shape of the track is circular.

A. Because the end point is the same as the starting point.
Explanation
The displacement is equal to 0 because the end point of Jermaine's run is the same as the starting point. Displacement measures the change in position from the initial point to the final point, and since Jermaine ends up back where he started, there is no change in position. This is regardless of how fast he runs or the shape of the track.

Rate this question:

### Julie spins around 3 times without moving any direction. What is the distance and the displacement.

• A.

3 because she spins 3 times.

• B.

0 because she is just in one position.

B. 0 because she is just in one position.
Explanation
The distance is 0 because Julie does not move from her original position while spinning. Displacement refers to the change in position from the starting point to the ending point, and since Julie ends up in the same position where she started, the displacement is also 0.

Rate this question:

### David walked for 5 km north and 4 km east. What is the displacement?

• A.

6.4 km

• B.

6.4 km NE

• C.

6.4 miles NE

B. 6.4 km NE
Explanation
The displacement is 6.4 km NE because it represents the straight-line distance and direction from the starting point to the ending point of David's walk. By using the Pythagorean theorem, we can find that the displacement is approximately 6.4 km. The "NE" indicates that the direction is northeast, which is the combination of north and east.

### The car runs 5 miles in 0.25 hour. The __________is 20 miles/h.

• A.

Speed

• B.

Velocity

• C.

Distance

A. Speed
Explanation
The question provides information about the car running 5 miles in 0.25 hours. To calculate the speed, we divide the distance traveled (5 miles) by the time taken (0.25 hours), which gives us a speed of 20 miles per hour. Therefore, the correct answer is speed.

Rate this question:

• 28.

### The formula for for time is

• A.

Distance divided by speed

• B.

Speed divided by velocity

• C.

Both

A. Distance divided by speed
Explanation
The correct answer is "distance divided by speed" because time is calculated by dividing the distance traveled by the speed at which it was traveled. This formula is derived from the basic equation of speed, which is distance divided by time. By rearranging the equation, we can solve for time by dividing distance by speed. Therefore, the formula for time is distance divided by speed.

Rate this question:

### The car run 200 km north and 350 km east 5 hours.The velocity of the car is _______.

• A.

110 km/h northeast

• B.

110 km/h eastnorth

• C.

110 km/h southeast

A. 110 km/h northeast
Explanation
The car traveled a total distance of 550 km in 5 hours, with 200 km north and 350 km east. To find the velocity, we need to divide the total distance by the total time. Therefore, the velocity of the car is 550 km / 5 hours = 110 km/h. Since the car traveled more distance towards the east than towards the north, the velocity is in the northeast direction.

Rate this question:

• 30.

### Miguel flies the plane directly west for 20 miles, then turns to the south and flies another 30 miles in 0.5 hour. What is the velocity of the plane?

• A.

72 miles/h SW

• B.

72 km/h SW

A. 72 miles/h SW
Explanation
Miguel first flies west for 20 miles, which gives him a westward velocity. Then, he turns south and flies another 30 miles in 0.5 hours. To find the velocity, we need to divide the total distance traveled (50 miles) by the total time taken (0.5 hours). This gives us a velocity of 100 miles/hour. Since Miguel flew west for 20 miles and south for 30 miles, we can use the Pythagorean theorem to find the resultant velocity. The resultant velocity is the hypotenuse of a right triangle with sides of 20 miles (west) and 30 miles (south). Using the theorem, we find that the resultant velocity is 36.06 miles/hour. Since the resultant velocity is in the southwest direction, the correct answer is 72 miles/hour southwest.
