SsgtSyms 3 years ago Not necessarily a question, but what are your views on what i is when i^2=-1?

1. 14yamaka

i=sqrt(-1)

2. iven5880

i is just that. It is used to denote $\sqrt{-1}$ and is also used to multiply the magnitude of the imaginary parts on complex numbers

3. UnkleRhaukus

the imaginary part of a complex number is a measure of what stage the phasing is in, then true value of the numbers is oscillating in the complex plane, (going in and out of phase)
