# is current is scalar or vector quantity?

Current is a scalar quantity because it doesn't obey the laws of vector addition.

Electric current is neither a scalar nor a vector quantity. Electric current in a wire has both magnitude and direction but there is no meaning of triangle rule there. Also since it is gives the magnitude of charge flowing per unit time it has nothing to do with the direction. If you still have any doubts you can check it from H.C. Verma's Concepts of Physics for +1.

The direction of flow of the Conventional current is opposite to the direction of flow of electrons.

THUMP UP PLSS SWEETY AS ITS RIGHT ! !

neither a scalar nor a vector quantity. its a tensor quantity which has

magnitude

and

direction but didnt follow triangle rule

neither a scalar nor a vector quantity. its a tensor quantity

• 4

Its a tensor. It has direction as well as magnitude but it doesn't follow the triangle law of vector addition nor does it follow the paralellogram law
