110.4 Trigonometric (Polar) Form of Complex Numbers The Complex Plane and Vector RepresentationsCall the horizontal axis the real axis and the vertical axis the imaginary axis. Now complex numbers can be graphed in this complex plane.The sum of two complex numbers can be represented graphically by the vector that is the resultant of the sum of vectors corresponding to the two numbers.
210.4 Expressing the Sum of Complex Numbers Graphically Example Find the sum of 6 – 2i and –4 – 3i. Graphboth complex numbers and their resultant.Solution (6 – 2i) + (–4 – 3i) = 2 – 5i
310.4 Trigonometric (Polar) Form The graph shows the complex number x + yi that corresponds to the vector OP.Relationship Among x, y, r, and
410.4 Trigonometric (Polar) Form Substituting x = r cos and y = r sin into x + yi givesTrigonometric or Polar Form of a Complex NumberThe expressionr(cos + i sin )is called the trigonometric form (or polar form) of the complex number x + yi.
510.4 Trigonometric (Polar) Form Notation:cos + i sin is sometimes written cis . Using this notation, r(cos + i sin ) is written r cis .The number r is called the modulus or absolute value of the complex number x + yi.Angle is called the argument of the complex number x + yi.
