Two particles A and B start from P and move along a circular path; in anticlockwise and clockwise direction respectively as shown in above figure. Both the particles are moving with same speed. When will both the particles possess the same average velocities? 

The particles are moving along a circular path, but in opposite directions. So, they do not have the same average velocity. 

The particles will have the same average velocity, when they are at a point diametrically opposite to each other. Because at this point, both particles will undergo the same displacement in the same time. Hence, at this point the particle will have same velocity. 

Give three examples of vector quantities.

Force, impulse and momentum.

What are the basic characteristics that a quantity must possess so that it may be a vector quantity?

A quantity must possess the direction and must follow the vector axioms. Any quantity that follows the vector axioms are classified as vectors. 


What is a vector quantity?

A physical quantity that requires direction along with magnitude, for its complete specification is called a vector quantity.

Give three examples of scalar quantities.

Mass, temperature and energy

What is a scalar quantity?

A physical quantity that requires only magnitude for its complete specification is called a scalar quantity.
