How do you go about sketching y as a function of t for t≥0(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

y= e^{(0.5t + i(√7/2)t)}- e^{(0.5t-i(√7/2)t)}

I know it goes through the origin, and the gradient is positive here. But i'm unsure on how to deal with the imaginary numbers when I have a graph of y vs t.
