3 ) SCALAR AND VECTOR QUANTITIES

PHYSICAL QUANTITIES CAN BE CLASSIFIED INTO SCALAR QUANTITIES AND VECTOR QUANTITIES.

yQuantities that have magnitude only yExample : Distance . mass . speed .SCALAR QUANTITIES.

y Example : Displacement. weight . velocity .VECTOR QUANTITIES y Quantities that have both magnitude and direction.
