What is the product of scalar and vector quantity?
Why isn't the sum of two vectors a scalar?
A vector has direction, where as a scalar does not. When you add two vectors, it is like you are moving one vector to the end of the other vector, and closing off the triangle with a vector for the third side. That third vector is the addition of the first two vectors. The new vector points in a specific direction, so it cannot be a scalar.
