    Magnitude question(Please! i am stuck)

    Can someone please help me with this.

    I am trying to figure out for any circular path:

    eg
    y(t)=10+e^it or |z-10|=1
    y(t)=i+e^3it |z-i|=1

    is the magnitude simply the radius of the circle ie 10 and 1 or do i have to take into account the translation, there are no examples in my book on ML estimates so i am just practising different things .

    Because i want to make sure that my ML estimates are correct.

    say the path is from 0 to 2pi. I need to find the length of the path, then use this to find an upper bound for various integrals along these circular posts.

    Perhaps it would be best to post the whole question, exactly as it's written in wherever you got it from.
