# DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN SCALAR AND VECTOR QUANTITIES .

Here are the differences between scalar and vector:

 Scalar Vector A physical quantity which has only magnitude is known as scalar quantity. A physical quantity which has magnitude as well as direction is known as vector quantity. For ex: mass, length, time, work, etc. For ex: velocity, displacement, acceleration, etc. Scalars obey algebraic rules for the operations like addition and multiplication. Vectors obey vector algebra for the operations like addition and multiplication. A scalar can divide another scalar. Two vectors can never divide each other.
