Angle as a vector

  1. Dec 31, 2014 #1
    If the physical quantity angle doesn't follow the vector addition property (only infinitesimal angles follow this), why is it even considered to be a vector? Because i thought electrical current isn't considered to be a vector because it doesn't follow this rule. Why isn't it enough to rule out angle as a vector quantity?

    Neither electric current nor angle are considered to be vectors. Current density is a vector quantity.
