    Unhappy Proof of the modulus and Amplitude

    In need proof of all justifications on a moduli equation?
    x=r(cos u + i sin u)
    y=t(cos v + i sin v)

    Welcome to Math Help Forum!

    Sorry, but I don't understand the question. What exactly are you asked to prove?

    Here is my problems:

    A: Prove that the modulus of (xy) is the product of their moduli and justify my proof

    B: Prove that the amplitude of (xy) is the sum of their amplitudes and justify the proof.

    HELP!!!

    There are three vital things that you need to complete the proof:

    • i^2 = -1 (1)
    • \cos(A+B) = \cos A\cos B -\sin A \sin B (2)
    • \sin(A+B) = \sin A\cos B + \cos A \sin B (3)

    So, you simply multiply x by y by expanding the brackets, but leave the r and t outside:

    xy = r(\cos u +i\sin u).t(\cos v + i\sin v)

    = rt(\cos u\cos v + \cos u.i\sin v + i\sin u \cos v + i^2\sin u \sin v)

    = rt\Big(\cos u \cos v - \sin u \sin v + i(\sin u \cos v + \cos u \sin v)\Big), by re-arranging the order of the terms, and using (1)

    =rt\Big(\cos(u+v) + i\sin (u+v)\Big), using (2) and (3)

    =s(\cos w + i\sin w), where s = rt and w = u+v

    And this is a complex number whose modulus is s, and amplitude w, where s = rt = product of the moduli of x and y, and w = u+v = sum of their amplitudes.
