current is vector or scalar
it is a scalar quantity
Current is a scalar and not a vector quantity despite having both magnitude and direction.
Current is a vector quantity because it includes direction.
It depends upon the condition.But basically, to be a vector, the physical quantities needs to follow vector algebra.but current dos not follow it so it is scalar quantity.
Definitely current is a SCALAR. Current density, of course, is a vector quantity Current = charge / time Both charge and time are scalars Current density = current / area Here area is a vector quantity Hence scalar product of current density and area give scalar quantity i.e. current. So electric current is a scalar Of course we assign +ve and -ve sign to currents. It is not because of direction as we do incase of vectors. But it is only algebraic sign.
Electric current is a scalar.
It is a vector because it has a magnitude and a direction (it can be positive or negative).
A scalar times a vector is a vector.
Current is not scalar. Current is a vector quantity. For simplicity, in electric circuits, current is scalar because the direction is assumed to be one way or another, rather than three dimensional.
scalar. although current has magnitude(1A,20A,5A etc) and direction but it does not follow vbector laws. hence it is a scalar quantity
(vector) times (vector) produces either a vector or a scalar, depending on whether the vector product or scalar product is performed. (vector) times (scalar) produces a new vector.
Vector is NOT a scalar. The two (vector and scalar) are different things. A vector is a quantity (measurement) in which a direction is important. A scalar is a quantity in which a direction is NOT important.
A vector quantity includes a direction; a scalar does not.A vector quantity includes a direction; a scalar does not.A vector quantity includes a direction; a scalar does not.A vector quantity includes a direction; a scalar does not.
A Vector. A scalar times a vector is a vector.
Position is Vector, not scalar.
The product of scalar and vector quantity is scalar.
A vector: the scalar portion of the vector is multiplied with the scalar, but the direction is 'conserved' - it just changes the amount, not the direction.
We generally think of electric current as a scalar quantity. When we think of 1/4th amp or 20 amps, we think of an amount (a scalar quantity) of current flow. On another plane, the electromagnetic forces at work in current generation are actually force vectors. In the traditional sense, electric current, which is the movement of electrons, is from negative to positive. This is not a vector, though. In the macro or "large" world, think of current as scalar.---------------------------------------------------------------------The beauty is that though current is not a vector definitely its direction of flow is used to make length as vector. I is not vector. dl is not vector but I dl will be considered as vector. So innovative and essential concept.>Current density is a vector which appears in Maxwell's equations.
it's vector and mass is scalar
It is an oxymoron. A measurement can be a vector or a scalar. It cannot be both.
scalar direction is a vector quantity
Distance is a scalar. Displacement is a vector
In DC(direct current) circuits, voltage is scalar. But in the case of alternating-current(AC) voltage is vector quantity. It is because in an AC circuit the current is changing the direction for every time period. Therefore, since in this the direction matters its a vector quantity. Regards.
