The size or measure of a quantity.

SCALAR:

Scalar means a quantity which has only magnitude.

VECTOR:

Vector means a quantity which has both magnitude and direction.

VELOCITY:

Rate of change of displacement of an object(shortest distance b/w 2 fixed points) is called velocity.velocity is equivalent to speed in magnitude.

velocity is a vector quantity.

1- Magnitude is the number which describes or tells the quantity of a unit. for eg.. in 4m- 4 is the magnitude of metre

2- Scaler quantities are those quantities which have magnitude and a particular unit but vector quantities are those quantities which have magnitude towards a particular direction of a unit.

3- velocity is speed of an object towards a particular direction. thats all.....
