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.

Solution:

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
