    I studied in high school that there are four types of measuring quantities 1)Scalar 2)Vector 3)Phasor 4)Tensor I studied about Scalar and vector in great detail,but,i did not get to know about Phasor and Tensor.

    i would like to know the difference between a spinor and a tensor (they are some kinda matrix) , but my studies havent brought me to that level yet

    a phasor or sinor is some sort of a sinusoid.

    phasor is just a phase vector, like \(A \sin (\omega \theta)\) is a phasor, one which has amplitude, frequency and phase.
