19) Tensor : A quantity that has different values in different directions is called tensor.

Example : Moment of Inertia

​Note: A scalar is a zero rank tensor, and a vector is a first rank tensor.

20) Electric current is not a vector as it does not obey the law of vector addition.

21) Pressure possess multiple directions. For a quantity to be a vector, it should possess only one direction.

22) The path of one projectile as seen from another projectile is a straight line as relative acceleration of one projectile w.r.t. another projectile is zero.
