The wave function is an exponential function, if I plot the real part of it, I don't get a wave graph like sine or cosine function, Why the wave function is not represented by a trigonometric ratio instead.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Also, the wave function cannot be plotted since it is imaginary, why is it imaginary?

Thanks
