Classify the following measures as scalars and vectors.

(i) 15 kg

(ii) 20 kg weight

(iii) 45°

(iv) 10 metres south-east

(v) $$50m/s^2$$

##### Solution :-

(i) 15 kg is a scalar quantity because it involves only mass.

(ii) 20 kg weight is vector quantity as it involves both magnitude and direction.

(iii) 45° is a scalar quantity as it involves only magnitude.

(iv) 10 meters south-east is a vector quantity as it involves direction.

(v) 50 m/s2 is a scalar quantity as it involves magnitude of acceleration.
