Over the last few weeks I have learned a lot about physics. I learned that speed and distance are scalars and velocity and displacement are vectors. A scalar has only magnitude, while a vector has both magnitude and direction. Speed is the rate at which distance is traveled, whereas velocity is the rate at which displacement changes. Distance is a change in position, while displacement is a straight line vector from start point to end point. While taking physics I have struggled mainly with the writing portion of the lab. This was my first lab all year so I'm sure I'll improve, but I didn't quite understand a few aspects of the format such as the abstract and the discussion/analysis. Hopefully, I can do a better job next time.
