Simple question about Complex Logarithms

  1. Apr 14, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Log(exp(10i))


    3. The attempt at a solution

    Since we want to get this in terms of the principal argument, would it matter if we ultimately wrote i(10 - 3[itex]\pi[/itex]) or i(10 - 4[itex]\pi[/itex]), since they are both in range?

    Yes it matters. i(10 - 3pi) is not a full cycle difference, so not an equivalent angle.
