The Confusion of Vectors and Scalars

Posted on May 31, 2010 at 11:46 PM

One of the more commonly asked question is the classification of vector and scalar quantities.




Basically we know that vector quantities has both magnitude (value like 2m/s, 400m etc) and direction (which means there is a possible of positive or negative figures like -5.2m/s).




Fortunately, an easy rule can help us to remember them.

Most of us can remember the 3 usual suspects


The last member of this select group is FORCE.

Basically anything that has the unit of NEWTON, we can safely classify it under vector quatity. For example, friction, weight, pulling force, pushing force, contact force etc. The list can go on and on. You get the drift.



Which brings us to scalar, quatities which has magnitude and no direction. Since we are able to classify vectors, simply label the other components as scalar. Its that ez!
