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.

wikipedia tells me that a phasor is just a sinusoid

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.

I don't know what Spinor is though.

hmm what about Twistors?

Well,I have just completed high school,So you cannot expect that from me lol :P Spinors,twistors and quaternion are something i have not studied yet :(

they look a bit scary to me , but i aim to one day have a deep understanding of these concepts , one day

I also hope to have an understanding about them one day :) @Callisto Can you help us ?

@hartnn Tell me about Phasor and tensor((they are some kinda matrix) ?

hartnnBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
phasor is just a phase vector, like \(A \sin (\omega \theta)\) is a phasor, one which has amplitude, frequency and phase.

don't know much about tensors.....

i meant \(A \sin (\omega t +\theta)\) as phasor....

I am not sure about phasor, at least it's not a vector according to wikipedia

so tensors are always square matrices?
