Is angular momentum a vector quantity?

Angular momentum is a vector quantity. Angular velocity, which is a vector quantity, is multiplied by inertia, which is a scalar quantity.

Why angular velocity is vector quantity?

Because it's a type of velocity and velocity is vector quantity

Is momentum a vector or scalar quantity?

Momentum is a vector quantity. We know that momentum is the product of mass and velocity, and velocity has direction. That makes velocity a vector quantity. And the product of a scalar quantity and a vector quantity is a vector quantity.

Is velocity a vector or scalar quantity?


Is velocity an exampleo a vector quantity?

Yes, velocity is a vector quantity.

Is angular frequency vector or scalar?

Scalar. Angular frequency vector is roughly synonymous with angular velocity.

What is Difference between angular velocity and angular speed?

Angular velocity is a vector with a direction and angular speed is a scalar with no direction.

Is velocity a scalar quantity or vector quantity?

velocity is a vector quantity because it`s formula is displacement by time and displacement has a particular direction. that`s why velocity is a vector quantity but speed is a scalar quantity

Is instantaneous velocity a vector quantity?

"Velocity" is a vector quantity. This also applies to instantaneous velocity. If you want the scalar quantity, you talk about "speed".

Is the angular displacement a vector quantity or scalar quantity?

Displacement indicates a vector quantity, including angular displacement. The angular displacement is either clockwise or counter clockwise and the direction makes a difference. Angular distance would be a scalar.

How do you change an objects momentum?

Momentum is of two kind. One is linear momentum and the other is angular momentum. Linear momentum is defined as the product of the mass and the velocity. Hence a vector quantity. To change the momentum of a given body with its mass constant, its velocity is to be changed. Velocity change could be made by changing its magnitude or direction or both. Angular momentum is the product of moment of inertial and the angular velocity. Same manner, angular momentum is also a vector quantity as angular velocity is a vector quantity. Most of us think that moment of inertia of a body about any prescribed axis is also a vector quantity. It is totally wrong as far as my approach is concerned. Moment of inertia is a scalar quantity. So to change the momentum, some force can be applied by allowing a moving body to collide with. Angular momentum can be changed by applying torque on it. Torque colloquially saying is a turning force. Moment of effective force about an axis is termed as torque.

Is angular displacement is a vector?

angular displacement is a vector quantity when theta (angle) is small, otherwise it is scalar.

Which is a vector quantity speed or velocity?

velocity is a vector and speed is a scalar.

Is angular velocity a vector?

Yes, by golly, it is.

Is momentum a vector or scaler quantity?

Momentum is a vector quantity because the definition of momentum is that it is an object's mass multiplied by velocity. Velocity is a vector quantity that has direction and the mass is scalar. When you multiply a vector by a scalar, it will result in a vector quantity.

Is velocity a vector or a scalar?

Velocity is a vector quantity or simply vector, it has both magnitude an direction.

Is velocity a vector?

True ,velocity is a vector quantity ,it is specified by a magnitude and direction.

Is velocity a vector or a scalar quantity?

Velocity is a vector.Its magnitude is called 'speed'.

Is velocity a vector quantity?

Yes, velocity is a vector quantity since it can be defined by both magnitude and direction unlike speed.

Momentum is defined as?

The product of velocity and mass. Note that velocity is a vector quantity, therefore momentum, too, is a vector quantity.

What direction does the angular velocity vector of the Earth's rotation point toward?

The Earth's angular velocity vector due to its axial rotation points towards the north pole.
