Conjugate of amplitude with imag. # in exponent and out of exponent?

  1. Sep 5, 2011 #1
    When you have i*e^(i@) as an amplitude, when you conjugate, do both i terms switch signs? I tried this and keep getting wrong answer. Thanks in advance. BTW this has to do with spin half particles.

    never mind. was using <-zl+y> for amplitude, when it should be the conjugate of that.nNow switch both i terms works gives me correct answer.
