What is the difference between phasor and vector???
@Abhishek Rawal • 30 Aug, 2012 A phasor is subset of vectors; Also known as rotating vector, hence we can say they are almost same.
Going in detail, Phasors are of two types : Scalar phasor & Vector Phasor.
Scalar phasor contains phase & amplitude information.
Vector phasor contains phase, magnitude & direction information.

While Vectors contain magnitude & direction, It contains no phase information.

One more difference is; Phasor is time independent, while vectors are time dependent.
