Electric current has both magnitude and direction but it is not a vector quantity. Why?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 4th Jun, 2014, 01:23: PM
The reason is that the laws of ordinary algebra are used to add electric current. The laws of vector algebra do not apply to the addition of electric currents.
