 Question Answer Scalar Magnitude without direction e.g. length, area, volume, distance, speed, mass, density, pressure, temperature, energy, work, power, electrical potential, charge & time. Vector A quantity that has both magnitude and direction e.g. displacement, velocity, acceleration, momentum, forces (weight), fields, a.c voltage & current when calculating fields Displacement Net distance moved in a particular direction Instantaneous Speed Speed measured between two points at a very small time apart Average Speed distance covered / time taken - distance traveled per unit time Velocity Speed in a given direction Acceleration Gradient of a velocity time graph = change in velocity per unit time taken
