What is Scalar?

The quantity, which has only magnitude and no direction, is termed as a scalar quantity. For example length, mass, speed, etc are some of the examples of scalar.

What is a Vector?

The physical quantity, which comprises of both magnitude and direction, is termed as a vector quantity. For example, velocity, momentum, force, etc are some of the examples of scalar.

➣ Distinguish :

A vector quantity has a direction and a magnitude, while a scalar has only a magnitude. You can tell if a quantity is a vector by whether or not it has a direction associated with it. Example: Speed is a scalar quantity, but velocity is a vector that specifies both a direction as well as a magnitude.
