The concept of complex numbers (CNs) is used in many disciplines. In many cases, students find it difficult to understand the logic behind CNs. Rotations, vibrations, and oscillations result in sine or cosine waves. Mathematical representation of rotation/vibration/oscillation is done in two ways—trigonometry and complex numbers. But the algebraic calculation is easier if CNs are used instead of trigonometric functions. The use of CNs as an effective representation of sinusoidal variations is discussed in this article.
