Scalar Motion

Scalar Motion is a ratio of a magnitude of space to a quantity of time, having no inherent direction or geometry.

Scalar motion is also referred to as speed, as in "miles per hour" or "meters per second," having a speed but no direction.

Contrasting scalar motion is vectorial motion, or velocity, where you have a speed plus a direction. An example would be, "heading north at 45 miles per hour."
