Exponential Form of e^z for z = 4e^(i*pi/3)

In summary, to write e^z in the form a + bi, we first convert z to the form a + bi by using Euler's formula, z = r(cos theta + i*sin theta). Plugging in the given values, we get z = 4*(cos(pi/3) + i*sin(pi/3)), which simplifies to z = 2 + 2*sqrt(3). Then, we can write e^z as e^(2)*(cos(2*sqrt(3)) + i*sin(2*sqrt(3))), which is the solution provided.

Homework Statement



write e^z in the form a +bi
z = 4e^(i*pi/3)

---------------------------------------
My guess:

z = 4*(cos(pi/3) + i*sin(pi/3))

e^z = e^(4*(cos(pi/3) + i*sin(pi/3))) = e^(4*cos(pi/3))*(cos(4*sin(pi/3)) + i*sin(4*sin(pi/3)))

but the solution says

e^(2)*(cos(2*sqrt(3)) + i*sin(2*sqrt(3)))

Well, [itex]\sin(\pi/3)=\frac{\sqrt{3}}{2}[/itex], and I'm sure you know what [itex]\cos(\pi/3)[/itex] is...:wink:

Thanks for the help.

z = 4e^(i*pi/3)
z = 4*(cos(pi/3) + i*sin(pi/3))
z = 2 + 2*sqrt(3)
e^z = e^(2)*(cos(2*sqrt(3)) + i*sin(2*sqrt(3))
