# Creating a Tensor

### Creating a Tensor

Following is the way of creating a Tensor

Syntax:

``tf.constant(value, dtype, name = "")``

Arguments:

-`value`: Value of n-dimension to define the tensor.

Optional -

'dtype' - Define the type of data:

• `tf.string`: String variable
• `tf.int16`: Integer variable
• `tf.float32`: Flot variable
• "name": Name of the tensor.

Optional:

By default, `Const_1:0`

### to create a tensor of dimension 0

``````import tensorflow as tf
r1 = tf.constant(1, tf.int16)
print(r1)
r2 = tf.constant(1, tf.int16, name = "my_scalar")
print(r2)``````

The output of the above code will be Tensor("Const_1:0", shape=(), dtype=int16) Tensor("my_scalar:0", shape=(), dtype=int16)

### to create a tensor with decimal or string values

``````import tensorflow as tf
# Decimal
r1_decimal = tf.constant(1.12345, tf.float32)
print(r1_decimal)
# String
r1_string = tf.constant("infovistar", tf.string)
print(r1_string)  ``````

The output of the above code will be Tensor("Const_2:0", shape=(), dtype=float32) Tensor("Const_3:0", shape=(), dtype=string)

### to create a tensor of dimension 1

``````import tensorflow as tf
r2_boolean = tf.constant([True, True, False], tf.bool)
print(r2_boolean)
## Rank 2
r2_matrix = tf.constant([ [1, 2],
[3, 4] ], tf.int16)
print(r2_matrix)``````

The output of the above code will be Tensor("Const_4:0", shape=(3,), dtype=bool) Tensor("Const_5:0", shape=(2, 2), dtype=int16)
