# What are the example of vector quantity?

A vector quantity is differentiated from a scalar value by
virtue of having both *magnitude* and *direction*. Hence,
30km/h is a scalar quantity, 30km/h NNE is a vector quantity.

EXAMPLES: -

DISPLACEMENT

VELOCITY

FORCE

MOMENTUM

ACCCLERATION

ELECTRICITY

GRAVITIONAL FORCE

FIELD

### Which are the scalar quantities?

A scalar quantity is a non-vector quantity. In a vector quantity, direction is relevant. In a scalar quantity, it is not. For example, mass (measured in kg.) is a scalar; force is usually indicated as a vector (magnitude in Newton, but the direction is also relevant). A scalar quantity is a non-vector quantity. In a vector quantity, direction is relevant. In a scalar quantity, it is not. For example, mass (measured in kg.) is a…

### Why is momentum known as a vector quantity?

A vector quantity is one which transforms like the coordinates. In other words, if a coordinate system is transformed by an operator , any vector quantity in the old coordinate system can be transformed to its equivalent in the new system by the same operator. An example of a vector quantity is displacement (r). If displacement is a vector, the rate of change of displacement (dr/dt) or the velocity is also a vector. The mass…

### The moment of a force is vector or a scalar quantity?

It is a vector quantity because it got direction such as clockwise and anticlockwise.now every time a physical quantity having magnitude and direction doesn't have to be a vector. for example current electricity, it has both magnitude and direction but its a scalar quantity.another criteria is that a vector can only be calculated (add,substract) by using vector rules. moment of force can only be calculated using vector methods not algebra methods.so its a vector
