Scalars

Vectors

A scalar quantity is described completely by its magnitude only. 

A vector quantity is described completely by magnitude and direction examples examples

Examples: Examples of scalars are mass, length, time, speed, volume, work, energy, density, power, electric charge, pressure, area, and temperature. 

Examples: Examples of vectors are velocity, displacement, force, momentum, torque, weight, electric potential, etc.
