sqrt (1 + j1049.3)(j0.075)

i try it but.. keep on getting negative answer.. (Headbang)

the answer should be 0.004 + j8.87

As you can see here the given answer is correct.

What are you using to calculate the value?

What is the source and text of the original question? - Sep 13th 2011, 10:02 AMnameckRe: solving comple number
ya.. i get the answer from wolfram also..

i'm using DeMoivre's theorem.. still cannot get the correct answer..

question is about transmission line..

i need solve the complex number to get the value of propagation constant..

and still i didn't get the correct answer.. got any idea to solve it Plato? - Sep 13th 2011, 10:25 AMPlatoRe: solving comple number

got it!

change to polar form first.. then change to rectangular form back..

then.. Walla! got the answer.. thanks guys.. =)
