3.1 VECTOR AND SCALAR QUANTITIES

Test your knowledge of vectors and scalars using this self-check quiz provided by The Physics Classroom.

This GIF animation from the Multimedia Physics Studios shows the resultant velocities of a plane flying into a headwind, a tailwind, and a crosswind. Also check out The River Boat for an animation showing the resultant velocities of a river boat.

3.2 VELOCITY VECTORS

What are vectors and how do you use them? Find out in this interactive tutorial from the Zona Land physics and math education site.

Practice using scaled vector diagrams to represent the magnitude and direction of a vector by taking this self-check quiz from The Physics Classroom.

This chapter from The Physics Classroom provides a comprehensive introduction to the concept of vectors. Be sure to check out the following topics:

3.3 COMPONENTS OF VECTORS

Find out how to resolve any vector into its component vectors in this helpful tutorial from The Physics Classroom.

3.4 PROJECTILE MOTION

A soccer ball kicked into the air, a fork falling off a table, a spacecraft circling Earth--all these are examples of projectile motion. Explore this online tutorial to find out more about projectile motion. After you're done, test your knowledge by playing the game Water Balloons.

Analyze the projectile motion of a ball in flight in this lesson from the Learn Physics Today online tutorial.

You are the zookeeper at the Glenview Zoo. Use your knowledge of projectile motion to fire bananas to a monkey in a tree. These GIF animations are from the Multimedia Physics Studio.
