In electrical engineering, as well as in other areas, sinusoidal waveforms can be represented by means of phasors. A phasor can be thought of as the representation of a complex number with a constant modulus and a varying angle. As the angle varies continuously from zero to 360º, the length of the projection of the phasor on either the real or complex axis varies according to a time-dependent sine or cosine function.
