 Quote from: prashantakerkar (A month ago)Could it be useful to add a new column in the table to classify the physical quantity as Scalar or Vector?I don't think that's necessary. As a scientist using these units, you should be able to tell which is which, what do you say?

 Here's a list of 20 different vector quantities. All of these are made up of different SSI units, so it's not a practical to make note of them all. What you have to do is recall that a vector quantity consists of a direction, so if your unit includes a direction, you know where it stands.1) Displacement2) Velocity3) Acceleration4) Force5) Torque6) Electric field7) Magnetic field8) Angular velocity9) Linear Momentum10) Dipole moment 11) Vector potential 12) Angular momentum13) Weight14) Current density15) Thrust 16) Magnetic dipole moment 17) Magnetisation18) Polarization19) Electric Displacement20) Poynting Vector.
