Surface tension is vector scalar or tensor?
Tensor cause it acts both like vector nd scalar
Surface Tension is a scalar quantity. It cannot be represented in the Vector form.
Its a scalar quantity.... anyone can see from dimensions
IT IS TENSOR neither vector nor scalar
It's a scalar quantity... Yes or has direction.. But it doesn't follow vector laws.. Hence its scalar.. (Just like electric current..)
It is type of force
It is vector
It is a vector as it involves force which is a vector quant.
It's vector because surface tension pushes object upwards.so it's having direction.magnitude depends on density of object
