what is scaler quatienty
Asked by Sheetal Sharma | 5th Oct, 2013, 12:01: PM
A scalar quantity is a one which is specified by magnitude alone. That is, it is described by a number alone. There is no need to specify the direction.
Mass, temperature, speed, work, etc. are all scalar quantities.
For example: Mass of sugar is 5 kg. Now, this number is enough to specify the mass. You dont need to say that, mass of sugar is 5 kg towards east, or towards west.
