This is a homework problem for my Mathematical Physics course, where we're learning complex numbers and so on right now. I didn't see the subject over in the Physics site, and I wasn't quite sure which category this belonged in over here, so please move it if it if it's more appropriate somewhere else!
Anyway, on to the problem.
Either solve for z in the equation , or show that this cannot be done.
I attempted to show that it could not be done by taking the natural logarithm of both sides:
I then concluded by saying that, since you cannot take the natural logarithm of 0, the problem is unsolvable, or z is undefined, or you cannot solve for z.
I wanted to make sure that my reasoning is correct, or if I am actually wrong and it can be done (though I don't want the solution handed to me, if I'm wrong- just point me in the right direction, please!).
Thank you in advance!
When will cos(y) + isin(y) = 0
