Ok, so I know phasors are based on Euler's Formula: e(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); ^{j*(X+phi)}= cos(X+phi) + jsin(X+phi)

But how do we use real value like V(t) = Acos(V+phi) in Euler's Formula?

V(t) has no imaginary component, so how can we write the phasor of this as A<phi, where phi is the angle between real and imaginary axis?

I guess what I'm really asking is the "derivation" of real values to another representation that uses imaginary numbers..
