Length: 10 minutesAuthor: ChinweComplexity: Easy

Vectors in Physics|Types In physics, Vector quantities are that quantities which have a magnitude and a direction. If we take force as an example, we can show it in terms of the magnitude of the force and the direction of the force. Such quantities in physics are called vector quantities. When we take temperature as an example, ….  Read More
