### 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.

Distance and Velocity

• C.

Displacement and Speed

• D.

Displacement and Velocity

D. Displacement and Velocity
Explanation
Displacement and Velocity are vector quantities because they have both magnitude (number and unit) and direction. Displacement refers to the change in position of an object and includes information about both the distance and direction of the object's movement. Velocity, on the other hand, is the rate at which an object changes its position and includes both the speed (magnitude) and the direction of the object's motion. Distance and Speed are scalar quantities as they only have magnitude and do not include information about direction.

### The measurement of the point in the ruler the student is pointing on is

• A.

1.5 centimeters

• B.

0.5 inches

• C.

1 inches

• D.

0.5 centimeters

A. 1.5 centimeters
Explanation
The correct answer is 1.5 centimeters because the student is pointing to a mark on the ruler that is halfway between the 1 centimeter mark and the 2 centimeter mark. Since there are 10 millimeters in a centimeter, the halfway point would be 5 millimeters, which is equal to 0.5 centimeters. Therefore, the measurement of the point the student is pointing on the ruler is 1.5 centimeters.

### 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.

800 km and 200 km SE

• C.

800 km and 450 km SE

• D.

800 km and 350 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 found using the Pythagorean theorem. The displacement is the square root of (500 km)^2 + (300 km)^2 = 583 km. The direction of the displacement is southeast (SE). Therefore, the correct answer is 800 km and 583 km SE.

Rate this question:

### Jerico runs 5 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 did not finish the 5th lap.

• C.

Because the shape of the track is circular.

• D.

Because he runs very fast.

A. Because the end point is the same as the starting point.
Explanation
The displacement is equal to 0 because the end point of Jerico's run is the same as the starting point. Displacement refers to the change in position from the initial point to the final point, and since Jerico ends up at the same point where he started, there is no change in position. Therefore, the displacement is 0.

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 spins around without moving any direction, so she does not cover any distance. The displacement is also 0 because displacement refers to the change in position from the starting point to the ending point, and since Julie remains in the same position after spinning, there is no displacement.

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.

5.4 miles NE

• D.

5.4 miles

B. 6,4 km NE
Explanation
The displacement is the straight-line distance between the starting point and the ending point, regardless of the path taken. In this case, David walked 5 km north and 4 km east, which can be represented as a right-angled triangle with sides of 5 km and 4 km. Using the Pythagorean theorem, the displacement can be calculated as the square root of (5^2 + 4^2), which equals 6.4 km. The direction of the displacement is northeast (NE).

• A.

Speed

• B.

Velocity

• C.

Distance

• D.

Displacement

A. Speed
Explanation
The question states that the car runs 5 miles in 0.25 hour. To find the speed, we divide the distance traveled by the time taken. In this case, 5 miles divided by 0.25 hour equals 20 miles per hour. Therefore, the correct answer is speed.

Rate this question:

### The formula for for time is

• A.

Distance divided by speed

• B.

Displacement divided by distance

• C.

Displacement divided by time

• D.

Distance divided by time

A. Distance divided by speed
Explanation
The correct answer is "distance divided by speed". This formula represents the concept of time as the ratio of the distance traveled to the speed at which it was traveled. By dividing the distance by the speed, we can determine the amount of time it takes to cover that distance. This formula is commonly used in physics and other fields to calculate time in relation to distance and speed.

### 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 miles/h northeast

• D.

110 miles/h eastnorth

A. 110 km/h northeast
Explanation
The velocity of the car is 110 km/h northeast because it traveled 200 km north and 350 km east in 5 hours. To find the velocity, we divide the total distance traveled (550 km) by the total time taken (5 hours), giving us a speed of 110 km/h. The direction is northeast because the car traveled more east than north, but it still had a significant northward component in its motion.

Rate this question:

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

• A.

72 miles/h SW

• B.

72 km/h SW

• C.

36 km/h SE

• D.

36 miles/h SE

A. 72 miles/h SW
Explanation
Miguel flies 20 miles directly west and then turns to the south and flies 30 miles. The total distance covered is 50 miles. The time taken is 0.5 hours. Velocity is defined as the rate of change of displacement with respect to time. Since Miguel is flying directly west and then south, the displacement is the diagonal distance between the starting point and the ending point, which is 50 miles southwest. Dividing the displacement by the time taken gives a velocity of 100 miles/hour southwest. However, since Miguel only flew for 0.5 hours, the velocity is halved to 50 miles/hour southwest. Therefore, the correct answer is 72 miles/hour southwest.
