if you are asking about the square root of a complex number in standard form ie $$a+ib$$ the method is simple.

Let $$\sqrt{a+ib} = x+iy \Rightarrow a+ib = (x+iy)^{2}$$

simplifying we get $$a+ib = x^{2}-y^{2}+2xyi \Rightarrow a = x^{2}-y^{2}$$ and $$b = 2xy$$ · 3 years, 6 months ago

Convert your complex number into polar form, and remember that $$\sqrt{z} = z^{\frac{1}{2}}$$ · 3 years, 6 months ago
