    vector mean. For example, if an object is traveling in the north-south direction at 55mph, its velocity will be 55mph in the south direction. There is a common misconception that speed and velocity are the same thing. but this is not true. Speed is a scalar quantity, meaning that it only has size and no direction. This is the most essential difference between speed and velocity. Thus, velocity is an equivalent of speed but just with the direction i.e. velocity without the direction would be called speed...

    “motion.” Acceleration is a vector quantity that can be defined as the rate at which an object changes its velocity. This change in velocity is caused by a net force that either speeds the object up, slows it down, or changes its direction. Speed is a scalar quantity and can be defined as how fast or slow an object moves from one place to another. Furthermore, velocity is speed in a specific direction. Velocity is also a vector quantity, just like acceleration. For this lab, we will be looking at changes...
