How?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know that a scalar quantity only comprises of magnitude while a vector consist of both magnitude and direction..

But is there no definite formula to determine whether or not a quantity is a scalar or a vector.. or is there a list of scalars and vectors to show all quantities grouping under scalar n vector..?
