pRESSURE IS VECTOR OR SCALAR?

Asked by  | 10th Dec, 2008, 10:47: PM

Expert Answer:

Pressure is a scaler quantity, not a vector quantity. It has a magnitude but no direction associated with it. Pressure acts in all directions at a point inside a gas. At the surface of a gas, the pressure force acts perpendicular to the surface.
