Expert Answer:

A vector is a physical quantity which has a magnitude as well as a direction related to that magnitude. For eg. velocity is a vector. It has a direction as well as a magnitude.
Where as Scalars just have magnitude. For eg. mass, it has only a magnitude which remains same in all the directions.
