Q&A

What are complex numbers?

Complex numbers are numbers that have a real part and an imaginary part, represented as a + bi, where a and b are real numbers.

What is the Cartesian form of a complex number?

The Cartesian form of a complex number represents its coordinates in the complex plane as (a, b), where a is the real part and b is the imaginary part.

What is the polar form of a complex number?

The polar form of a complex number represents its amplitude and phase shift as r(cosθ + isinθ), where r is the magnitude and θ is the angle.

How are complex numbers multiplied?

Complex numbers can be multiplied by using the exponential products rule, which involves adding the exponents of Euler's number e and multiplying the magnitudes of the complex numbers.

What are the applications of complex numbers?

Complex numbers have applications in signal processing, Fourier transforms, electrical engineering, quantum mechanics, and many other fields.
