Square root of 0Hi there maths chums! the other day i was relaxing upon my massaging recliner, as i needed to relieve myself of the painful rhumatism i suffer. Whilst doing so i like to ponder mathmatical problems, my mind lept upon one which caused much curiosity and admitedly a little confusion. I wonder wether any of your fine minds can enlighten me as to the square root of 0. Last edited by I love pi (20050721 22:52:54) #3 20050721 23:13:33
Re: Square root of 0Could be 0. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #4 20050722 00:42:53
Re: Square root of 0If a²=b, then the inverse must be true: √b=a. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #5 20050722 07:45:24
Re: Square root of 0But just try going a little LESS than 0 and find a square root. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #6 20050722 08:10:25
Re: Square root of 0Mathematicians were asked this question, to which there is no real answer, and they were vexed. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #7 20050722 14:23:52

Re: Square root of 0e^(i*pi)=1 Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #10 20050722 19:48:31

Re: Square root of 0
Of the five numbers considered important in mathematics, this number relates four. Character is who you are when no one is looking. #13 20050723 14:46:51

Re: Square root of 0
That's when the angle is in radians. e.g. 180 degrees = pi radians Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #17 20050808 22:10:18
Re: Square root of 0Square root of a number A is a number B which multiplied by itself gives the number A. Character is who you are when no one is looking.
