This is a very basic question, but one I keep getting confused on nonetheless. Can someone explain to me the difference between a scalar function and a vector function? I've been told that the only difference is in the way the quantities are regarded (one as scalars, the other as elements of a vector space) but I'm still quite confused... the terms keep popping up in relativity and I'm not sure what distinction I'm supposed to be making.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
