nope e^(pi/2 i)=i

The magnitude of the complex number in question is simply 1 unit as measured from the origin, and its argument is pi/2 radians. Where would this land you on the Argand diagram? Hardly the origin won't you say?

Peace.

general form is re^(i theta), where r is magnitude and theta is angle from initial line, so you can easily work it out from there

isit?? ive proven it and never come across it!!.
Thanks alot though mate.

Why do you think that your second expression is 0? is never 0 for any finite value of x.

I was wondering if they were talking about the real part. We will probably never know.

Euler's Identity would be a great film title.

i may have confused, i should have said one of the ways to represent a complex number is in exponential form

another way to look at it is sin(x)=cos(x)=0 is never true

in what way? did I say something incorrect?
What I was trying to say was you could draw an argand diagram and work it out graphically.

lol so much confusion caused.
re^(i theta) is the exponential form of a complex number where
r -magnitude/modulus
theta - angle from positive x axis or in this case positive real axis
Draw the complex number on argand diagram
The one asked by thread starter would be a line of length 1 unit and would lie on positive real axis
