Hello Guravaiah
Definition of scalar:A real number rather than a vector. A quantity (as mass or time) that has a magnitude describable by a real number and no direction.

a scalar quantity is a one dimensional measurement of quantity,like temparature or weight.a vector has more than one number associatedwith it.

Dear Guravaiah
In physics, a scalar is a one-dimensional physical quantity, i.e. one that can be described by a single real number (sometimes signed, often with units), in other words a scalar is a physical quantity that only has magnitude but no direction, unlike (or as a special case of) vectors, tensors, etc. which are described ...

scaler is defined only magnitude not direction.a quantity that has a magnitude describable by a real number and no direction.

the quantity which is having only magnitube but not the direction is defined as the scalar quantity.it doesnot have any direction.

Guravaiah, The quantity which has only magnitude but no direction is called scalar quantity. For example temperature,weight........etc

The quantity is either a vector or a scalar. These two categories can be distinguished from one another by their distinct definitions: Scalars are quantities that are fully described by a magnitude (or numerical value) alone. Vectors are quantities that are fully described by both a magnitude and a direction.

dear gravaih,
scalr is a nothing but a quantity which has only magnitide but doesnt have direction is called scalar quantity

THE BODY WHICH HAVE ONLY MAGNITUDE BUT NOT HAVE DIRECTION IS CALLED AS SCALAR.IF IT HAVE DIRECTION THEN IT CALLED AS VECTOR.

THE BODY WHICH HAS ONLY MAGNITUDE BUT NOT DIRECTION IS CALLED AS SCALAR.AND THE BODY WHICH HAS DIRECTION AND MAGNITUDE BUT NOT FOLLOWING VECTOR ADDITION IS ALSO CALLED AS SCALA FOR EXAMPLE ELECTRIC CURRENT HAS BOTH THE DIRECTION AND MAGNITUDE BUT IT NOT FOLLOWS THE VECTOR ADDITION SO IT OS CALLED SCALAR
