Why pressure is scalar whereas momentum is vector Quantity
Asked by sachinkumarsingh824124 | 14th Apr, 2021, 02:48: PM
A vector quantity can be defined by giving both magnitude and direction. Pressure has only magnitude but no specific direction as it acts in all directions. Pressure is scalar quantity.
Momentum is a vector quantity. We know that momentum is the product of mass and velocity, and velocity has direction.
