Vectors vs Scalar

  1. Jan 20, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Classify each of the following quantities as scalar(s) or vector(v):
    Temperature
    Speed
    Acceleration
    Volume
    Work
    Area
    Mass
    Electric Field
    Velocity
    Displacement
    Force

    2. Relevant equations
    none

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Temperature - scalar
    Speed - scalar
    Acceleration - vector
    Volume - scalar
    Work - scalar
    Area - scalar
    Mass - scalar
    Electric Field - scalar
    Velocity - vector
    Displacement - vector
    Force - vector
