Homework Help: Find all values complex equation

  1. Feb 23, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    i.5 - i

    2. Relevant equations
    zc=ec log(z)

    z1/n=exp[(1/n) log(z)], n is in integer

    3. The attempt at a solution

    letting c=.5-i and z=i so

    zc=e(.5-i) log(i) = e.5 log(i)*e-i log(i)

    from the second equation I reduced it to:
    i.5*e-i log(i) but I'm not sure where to go from there since the second known equation doesn't apply to the e^(-i log(i)) part

    exp(log(i)*(.5-i)) is a good start. Now figure out what possible values log(i) could have.
