Scalar and Vector Quantities
- Distance is an example of a scalar quantity, which means it has a magnitude (size), but does not have a direction.
- Other examples of scalar quantities include speed, time, power and energy.
- Displacement is an example of a vector quantity, which means it has a magnitude and it has a direction.
- Other examples of vector quantities include velocity, acceleration, force and momentum.
Scalar quantities have a magnitude only.
Vector quantities have a magnitude and a direction.
