Motion in a plane NCERT Solutions Class 11 Physics - Solved Exercise Question 4.2

Question 4.2:

Pick out the two scalar quantities in the following list :
force, angular momentum, work, current, linear momentum, electric field, average velocity, magnetic moment, relative velocity.


Work and current are scalar quantities.
Work done is given by the dot product of force and displacement. Since the dot product of two quantities is always a scalar, work is a scalar physical quantity.
Current is described only by its magnitude. Its direction is not taken into account. Hence, it is a scalar quantity
