By Ron Kurtus

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. How is a vector force different than a scalar force?

A scalar quantity has direction

They are exactly the same thing

A vector indicates force and direction

2. What is an advantage of using perpendicular components?

You can use the Pythagorean Theory to determine values

They are easier to draw

You can apply plain geometry

3. Why would you add vector forces?

To determine which is greater

Because it is impossible to subtract them

To determine the total result of applying the forces

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Physics. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
