### Vectors and Scalars (Force and System of Pulleys)

Lab 2 Vectors and Scalars (Force and System of Pulleys) Goals: We will investigate the vector nature of forces. We will also study a system of pulleys.

### Scalars

Scalars • We often employ a single number to represent quantities that we use in our daily lives such as weight, height etc. • The magnitude of this number depends on our age and whether we use metric or imperial units.
