We know that scalar is a quantity that is characterized solely by magnitude whereas vector is a quantity which is characterized by both magnitude and direction. For example, time, mass, and temperature are scalar quantities whereas displacement, velocity, and force are vector quantities. We represent a vector by an arrow over it. Geometrically, we represent a vector image by a directed line segment image where image has direction from P to Q. The ...
