Vector Quantity
Those physical quantities which possess both magnitude and direction and also obey vector algebraic rules.
Examples of vector quantities:-
Position, displacement, velocity, accelerationmomentum, weight, force, torque, impulse, thrustelectric field, magnetic field, gravitational field, electric current density, area, amplitude, wavelength, surface area etc.
Special Note: A quantity having magnitude and direction is not necessarily a vector. For example, time and electric current. These quantities have magnitude and direction but they are scalar. This is because they do not obey the laws of vector addition.
