Hint : (Which have direction is a vector and which have no direction is a scalar)

Scalar Quanty :-

A scalar is a quantity that is fully described by a magnitude only. It is described by just a single number. Some examples of scalar quantities include speed, volume, mass, temperature, power, energy, and time.

Vector Quantity :-

A vector is a quantity that has both a magnitude and a direction. Vector quantities are important in the study of motion. Some examples of vector quantities include force, velocity, acceleration, displacement, and momentum.

Note : - We should always consider the term as scalar or vector since it looks the same but the meaning of it is totally different for example :- Distance and Displacement are same only in one case but different in all other cases.
