  • A scalar quantity has only magnitude.
  • A vector quantity has both magnitude and direction.
Step 1:
We are asked to classify $40^\circ$ as a vector or a scalar quantity.
Clearly $40^\circ$ represents only the angle measure.
It shows only the magnitude,but not the direction.
Step 2:
Hence it is a scalar quantity.
