ok , this is a stupid thread, but someone at this site has the name "vector" and i learned about vectors and scalars in physics today! it was a lot of fun AND MY TEACHER IS THE COOLEST PHYSICS TEACHER EVER , at least in my little world. He treats physics like a magic class, we do all these mind boggling tricks and then relate them to physics, its great fun mate. p.s. scalars are measurements with one "unit" like time and mass and volume. vectors have two measurements like acceleration and directions etc. " which means they have something like degrees in the case of directions but then you can point which they go also. WOW I LOVE PHYSICS. to bad im gonna be a surgeon. shucks , maybe next lifetime.
