What is a tensor quantity and how is it different from vector and scalar qantities? Also why is pressure a tensor quantity?
The best source I could recommend for you on this topic is a book by J.F. Nye "Physical Properties of Crystals and their Representation by Tensors and Matrices". His description of what tensors are all about is extremely clear, and I think you might find it good reading.vtheone said:What is a tensor quantity and how is it different from vector and scalar qantities?
