streess is tensor,then,what is meant by tensor?
Tensors are used to represent the relation between vectors. They are geometrical objects which show’s the relation between vectors, vectors and scalars.It is a geometrical maping of the relations .Tensor analysis ,a branch in mathematics is helping to solve the complex equations in which many vectors are involved

Stress is tensor,then,what is meant by tensor? (Rupasri asked)
Tensor is a mathematical object analogous to but more general than a vector, represented by an array of components that are functions of the coordinates of a space.
Tensors are used to represent correspondences between sets of geometrical vectors.

Physically, vectors are used to represent locations, velocities, accelerations, flux densities, field
