Congrats on another successful Wiki Weekend Party. The Chemistry Wiki is coming along, and the community is actively collaborating on great pages. I’ve also been brainstorming with the community on #calculus, and we now have several comprehensive pages with numerous examples. We’ve seen how much people benefitted from getting feedback on their wiki pages through chat, and would be incorporating that much more. We’ve also been refining the concept of a wiki page, and have come up with the following:

What is a Brilliant wiki?

A Brilliant wiki has abriefoverview of a topic, followed bytonsof examples and applications. It should also have the following attributes:

Engaging perspectiveThe topic is introduced in a way that explainswhya person should be interested.Illuminating examplesKey concepts are illustrated through examples that build intuition and quickly convey a practical knowledge of how to solve common problems.Visual appealThe page is well-organized, easy to read, and integrates helpful images, GIFs, and videos.InteractivityThe page contains quizzes and problems for the reader to try, to see if they understand the concepts and techniques in the wiki.Brilliant wiki pages are written at the reading and comprehension level of an advanced high school student. For more details, see Wiki guidelines

This week, we will be working on Chemistry, Logic and Physics. More information is available here

Chemistry: Expansion into Organic Chemistry

Structural Representations of Organic Compounds

Common Names in Organic Chemistry

Chain Isomerism

Position Isomerism

Chemistry: Improve pages written up last week, pages begin with the description of what the thing is and include examples of the concept

Ionic Compounds - Needs supporting examples

Acid Base Equilibrium - Needs proper organization, needs more content

Atoms and Molecules - Needs examples, needs information on orbitals

Balancing Reactions - Needs explanation of N-factor in more detail, could use more examples

Logic:

Fill in the blanks

Operator Search - Trial and error, finding constraints / bounds

Tic Tac Toe - Explain the “double trap”, explain player 1 strategy, explain why it always end in a draw if both play optimally

Physics:

Momentum - Needs examples, explain how to calculate momentum and impulse

Periodic Motion - Add mathematical explanations, add examples of periodic motion

Moment of inertial - Explain how to calculate center of mass of several particles, needs examples, formatting could be improved

What is the square root of i

Log in to reply

\(i=e^{\frac{iπ}{2}}\)

Therefore \(i^{\frac{1}{2}}=e^{\frac{iπ}{4}}\)

Log in to reply

You may equate it to a+ib and then square the equation and compare real and imaginary parts. But more sweet and simple is to do what @aditya kumar did

\(\sqrt{i}\)

Well no one knew it! Thanks for enlightening us! :P
