(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Show that a wave function is phase-shifted by (pi)/2 when multiplied by

i and by (pi) when multiplied by −1.

2. Relevant equations

The wave function form I am using is function = A(cos(kx-wt)+isin(kx-wt))

But it was not specified which kind I can use

3. The attempt at a solution

I am not sure even where to begin...
