• ### 1 Introduction to TensorsSorin Mitran

1Introduction to Tensors In elementary physics we often come across two classes of quantities namely scalars and vectors. Mass density and temperature are examples of scalar quantities while velocity and acceleration are examples of vector quantities. A scalar quantity s value does not de- pend on the choice of the coordinate system.
