1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Basically, trying to determine whether the following are scalars of vectors: area and angle of polarization. 2. Relevant equations None 3. The attempt at a solution My guess was that area would be a scalar rather than a vector, but my notes say that it is a psuedovector - is this true? In what sense does it have direction? And why is it axial rather than a proper vector? Angle of polarization is a scalar I'm guessing, as its just a magnitude (angle) rather than direction?
