(vii) i 30 + i 40 + i 60

(viii) i 49 + i 68 + i 89 + i 110

Solution:

(i) i 457

Let us simplify we get,

i457 = i (456 + 1)

= i 4(114) × i

= (1)114 × i

= i [since i4 = 1]


(ii) i 528 

Let us simplify we get,

i 528 = i 4(132)

= (1)132 

= 1 [since i4 = 1]

(iii) 1/ i58

Let us simplify we get,

1/ i58 = 1/ i 56+2

= 1/ i 56 × i2

= 1/ (i4)14 × i2

= 1/ i2 [since, i4 = 1]

= 1/-1 [since, i2 = -1]

= -1

(iv) i 37 + 1/i 67

Let us simplify we get,

i 37 + 1/i 67 = i36+1 + 1/ i64+3

= i + 1/i3 [since, i4 = 1]

= i + i/i4

= i + i

= 2i

(v) [i 41 + 1/i 257]

Let us simplify we get,

[i 41 + 1/i 257] = [i40+1 + 1/ i256+1]

= [i + 1/i]9 [since, 1/i = -1]

= [i – i]

= 0

(vi) (i 77 + i 70 + i 87 + i 414)3

Let us simplify we get,

(i 77 + i 70 + i 87 + i 414)3 = (i(76 + 1) + i(68 + 2) + i(84 + 3) + i(412 + 2) ) 3

= (i + i2 + i3 + i2)3 [since i3 = – i, i2 = – 1]

= (i + (– 1) + (– i) + (– 1)) 3 

= (– 2)3

= – 8

(vii) i 30 + i 40 + i 60

Let us simplify we get,

i 30 + i 40 + i 60 = i(28 + 2) + i40 + i60

= (i4)7 i2 + (i4)10 + (i4)15

= i2 + 110 + 115 

= – 1 + 1 + 1

= 1

(viii) i 49 + i 68 + i 89 + i 110

Let us simplify we get,

i 49 + i 68 + i 89 + i 110 = i(48 + 1) + i68 + i(88 + 1) + i(116 + 2)

= (i4)12×i + (i4)17 + (i4)11×i + (i4)29×i2

= i + 1 + i – 1

= 2i

2. Show that 1 + i10 + i20 + i30 is a real number?

Solution:

Given:

1 + i10 + i20 + i30 = 1 + i(8 + 2) + i20 + i(28 + 2)

= 1 + (i4)2 × i2 + (i4)5 + (i4)7 × i2

= 1 – 1 + 1 – 1 [since, i4 = 1, i2 = – 1]

= 0

Hence , 1 + i10 + i20 + i30 is a real number.

3. Find the values of the following expressions:

(i) i49 + i68 + i89 + i110

(ii) i30 + i80 + i120

(vi) 1 + i2 + i4 + i6 + i8 + … + i20

(vii) (1 + i)6 + (1 – i)3

Solution:

(i) i49 + i68 + i89 + i110

Let us simplify we get,

i49 + i68 + i89 + i110 = i (48 + 1) + i68 + i(88 + 1) + i(108 + 2)

= (i4)12 × i + (i4)17 + (i4)11 × i + (i4)27 × i2

= i + 1 + i – 1 [since i4 = 1, i2 = – 1]

= 2i

∴ i49 + i68 + i89 + i110 = 2i

(ii) i30 + i80 + i120

Let us simplify we get,

i30 + i80 + i120 = i(28 + 2) + i80 + i120

= (i4)7 × i2 + (i4)20 + (i4)30

= – 1 + 1 + 1 [since i4 = 1, i2 = – 1]

= 1

∴ i30 + i80 + i120 = 1

(iii) i + i2 + i3 + i4

Let us simplify we get,

i + i2 + i3 + i4 = i + i2 + i2×i + i4

= i – 1 + (– 1) × i + 1 [since i4 = 1, i2 = – 1]

= i – 1 – i + 1

= 0

∴ i + i2 + i3 + i4 = 0

(iv) i5 + i10 + i15

Let us simplify we get,

i5 + i10 + i15 = i(4 + 1) + i(8 + 2) + i(12 + 3)

= (i4)1×i + (i4)2×i2 + (i4)3×i3

= (i4)1×i + (i4)2×i2 + (i4)3×i2×i

= 1×i + 1 × (– 1) + 1 × (– 1)×i

= i – 1 – i

= – 1

∴ i5 + i10 + i15 = -1

(v) [i592 + i590 + i588 + i586 + i584] / [i582 + i580 + i578 + i576 + i574]

Let us simplify we get,

[i592 + i590 + i588 + i586 + i584] / [i582 + i580 + i578 + i576 + i574]

= [i10 (i582 + i580 + i578 + i576 + i574) / (i582 + i580 + i578 + i576 + i574)]

= i10

= i8 i2

= (i4)2 i2

= (1)2 (-1) [since i4 = 1, i2 = -1]           

                             = -1 

∴ [i592 + i590 + i588 + i586 + i584] / [i582 + i580 + i578 + i576 + i574] = -1

(vi) 1 + i2 + i4 + i6 + i8 + … + i20

Let us simplify we get,

1 + i2 + i4 + i6 + i8 + … + i20 = 1 + (– 1) + 1 + (– 1) + 1 + … + 1

= 1

∴ 1 + i2 + i4 + i6 + i8 + … + i20 = 1

(vii) (1 + i)6 + (1 – i)3

Let us simplify we get,

(1 + i)6 + (1 – i)3 = {(1 + i)2 }3 + (1 – i)2 (1 – i)

= {1 + i2 + 2i}3 + (1 + i2 – 2i)(1 – i)

= {1 – 1 + 2i}3 + (1 – 1 – 2i)(1 – i)

= (2i)3 + (– 2i)(1 – i)

= 8i3 + (– 2i) + 2i2

= – 8i – 2i – 2 [since i3 = – i, i2 = – 1]

= – 10 i – 2

= – 2(1 + 5i)

= – 2 – 10i

∴ (1 + i)6 + (1 – i)3 = – 2 – 10i

(1 + i) (1 + 2i) = (1+i)(1+2i)

= 1(1+2i)+i(1+2i)

= 1+2i+i+2i2

= 1/ (4 – 1 + 4i) [since, i2 = -1]

= 1/(3 + 4i) [multiply and divide with (3 – 4i)]

= 1/(3 + 4i) × (3 – 4i)/ (3 – 4i)]

= (3-4i)/ (32 – (4i)2)

= (3-4i)/ (9 – 16i2)

= (3-4i)/ (9 – 16(-1)) [since, i2 = -1]

= (3-4i)/25

= (8 + (i2.i) + 3(4)(i) + 6i2) / (2 + 3i)

= (8 + (-1)i + 12i + 6(-1)) / (2 + 3i)

= (2 + 11i) / (2 + 3i)

[multiply and divide with (2-3i)]

= (2 + 11i)/(2 + 3i) × (2-3i)/(2-3i)

= [2(2-3i) + 11i(2-3i)] / (22 – (3i)2)

= (4 – 6i + 22i – 33i2) / (4 – 9i2)

= (4 + 16i – 33(-1)) / (4 – 9(-1)) [since, i2 = -1]

= (37 + 16i) / 13

∴ The values of a, b are 37/13, 16i/13

= (1 + √3i + i + √3i2) / (1 – i)

= (1 + (√3+1)i + √3(-1)) / (1-i) [since, i2 = -1]

= [(1-√3) + (1+√3)i] / (1-i)

[multiply and divide with (1+i)]

= [(1-√3) + (1+√3)i] / (1-i) × (1+i)/(1+i)

= [(1-√3) (1+i) + (1+√3)i(1+i)] / (12 – i2)

= [1-√3+ (1-√3)i + (1+√3)i + (1+√3)i2] / (1-(-1)) [since, i2 = -1]

= [(1-√3)+(1-√3+1+√3)i+(1+√3)(-1)] / 2

= (-2√3 + 2i) / 2

= -√3 + i

∴ The values of a, b are -√3, i

Let us simplify and express in the standard form of (a + ib),

(2 + 3i) / (4 + 5i) = [multiply and divide with (4-5i)]

= (2 + 3i) / (4 + 5i) × (4-5i)/(4-5i)

= [2(4-5i) + 3i(4-5i)] / (42 – (5i)2)

= [8 – 10i + 12i – 15i2] / (16 – 25i2)

= [8+2i-15(-1)] / (16 – 25(-1)) [since, i2 = -1]

= (23 + 2i) / 41

∴ The values of a, b are 23/41, 2i/41

(viii) (1 – i)3 / (1 – i3)

Let us simplify and express in the standard form of (a + ib),

(1 – i)3 / (1 – i3) = [13 – 3(1)2i + 3(1)(i)2 – i3] / (1-i2.i)

= [1 – 3i + 3(-1)-i2.i] / (1 – (-1)i) [since, i2 = -1]

= [-2 – 3i – (-1)i] / (1+i)

= [-2-4i] / (1+i)

[Multiply and divide with (1-i)]

= [-2-4i] / (1+i) × (1-i)/(1-i)

= [-2(1-i)-4i(1-i)] / (12 – i2)

= [-2+2i-4i+4i2] / (1 – (-1))

= [-2-2i+4(-1)] /2

= (-6-2i)/2

= -3 – i

∴ The values of a, b are -3, -i

(ix) (1 + 2i)-3

Let us simplify and express in the standard form of (a + ib),

(1 + 2i)-3 = 1/(1 + 2i)3

= 1/(13+3(1)2 (2i)+2(1)(2i)2 + (2i)3)

= 1/(1+6i+4i2+8i3)

= 1/(1+6i+4(-1)+8i2.i) [since, i2 = -1]

= 1/(-3+6i+8(-1)i) [since, i2 = -1]

= 1/(-3-2i)

= -1/(3+2i)

[Multiply and divide with (3-2i)]

= -1/(3+2i) × (3-2i)/(3-2i)

= (-3+2i)/(32 – (2i)2)

= (-3+2i) / (9-4i2)

= (-3+2i) / (9-4(-1))

= (-3+2i) /13

∴ The values of a, b are -3/13, 2i/13

= (3-4i)/ [4+4i-2i-2i2]

= (3-4i)/ [4+2i-2(-1)] [since, i2 = -1]

= (3-4i)/ (6+2i)

[Multiply and divide with (6-2i)]

= (3-4i)/ (6+2i) × (6-2i)/(6-2i)

= [3(6-2i)-4i(6-2i)] / (62 – (2i)2)

= [18 – 6i – 24i + 8i2] / (36 – 4i2)

= [18 – 30i + 8 (-1)] / (36 – 4 (-1)) [since, i2 = -1]

(xii) (5 +√2i) / (1-√2i)

Let us simplify and express in the standard form of (a + ib),

(5 +√2i) / (1-√2i) = [Multiply and divide with (1+2i)]

= (5 +√2i) / (1-√2i) × (1+2i)/(1+2i)

= [5(1+2i) + 2i(1+2i)] / (12 – (2)2)

= [5+52i + 2i + 2i2] / (1 – 2i2)

= [5 + 62i + 2(-1)] / (1-2(-1)) [since, i2 = -1]

= [3+62i]/3

= 1+ 22i

∴ The values of a, b are 1, 22i

2. Find the real values of x and y, if

(i) (x + iy) (2 – 3i) = 4 + i

(ii) (3x – 2i y) (2 + i)2 = 10(1 + i)

RD Sharma Solutions for Class 11 Maths Chapter 13 – Complex Numbers image - 4

(iv) (1 + i) (x + iy) = 2 – 5i

Solution:

(i) (x + iy) (2 – 3i) = 4 + i

Given:

(x + iy) (2 – 3i) = 4 + i

Let us simplify the expression we get,

x(2 – 3i) + iy(2 – 3i) = 4 + i

2x – 3xi + 2yi – 3yi2 = 4 + i

2x + (-3x+2y)i – 3y (-1) = 4 + i [since, i2 = -1]

2x + (-3x+2y)i + 3y = 4 + i [since, i2 = -1]

(2x+3y) + i(-3x+2y) = 4 + i

Equating Real and Imaginary parts on both sides, we get

2x+3y = 4… (i)

And -3x+2y = 1… (ii)

Multiply (i) by 3 and (ii) by 2 and add

On solving we get,

6x – 6x – 9y + 4y = 12 + 2

13y = 14

y = 14/13

Substitute the value of y in (i) we get,

2x+3y = 4

2x + 3(14/13) = 4

2x = 4 – (42/13)

= (52-42)/13

2x = 10/13

x = 5/13

x = 5/13, y = 14/13

∴ The real values of x and y are 5/13, 14/13

(ii) (3x – 2i y) (2 + i)2 = 10(1 + i)

Given:

(3x – 2iy) (2+i)2 = 10(1+i)

(3x – 2yi) (22+i2+2(2)(i)) = 10+10i

(3x – 2yi) (4 + (-1)+4i) = 10+10i [since, i2 = -1]

(3x – 2yi) (3+4i) = 10+10i

Let us divide with 3+4i on both sides we get,

(3x – 2yi) = (10+10i)/(3+4i)

= Now multiply and divide with (3-4i)

= [10(3-4i) + 10i(3-4i)] / (32 – (4i)2)

= [30-40i+30i-40i2] / (9 – 16i2)

= [30-10i-40(-1)] / (9-16(-1))

= [70-10i]/25

Now, equating Real and Imaginary parts on both sides we get

3x = 70/25 and -2y = -10/25

x = 70/75 and y = 1/5

x = 14/15 and y = 1/5

∴ The real values of x and y are 14/15, 1/5

(4+2i) x-3i-3 + (9-7i)y = 10i

Now, equating Real and Imaginary parts on both sides we get,

4x+9y-3 = 0 … (i)

And 2x-7y-3 = 10

2x-7y = 13 … (ii)

Multiply (i) by 7 and (ii) by 9 and add

On solving these equations we get

28x + 18x + 63y – 63y = 117 + 21

46x = 117 + 21

46x = 138

x = 138/46

= 3

Substitute the value of x in (i) we get,

4x+9y-3 = 0

9y = -9

y = -9/9

= -1

x = 3 and y = -1

∴ Thee real values of x and y are 3 and -1

(iv) (1 + i) (x + iy) = 2 – 5i

Given:

(1 + i) (x + iy) = 2 – 5i

Divide with (1+i) on both the sides we get,

Multiply and divide by (1-i)

= (2 – 5i)/(1+i) × (1-i)/(1-i)

= [2(1-i) – 5i (1-i)] / (12 – i2)

= [2 – 7i + 5(-1)] / 2 [since, i2 = -1]

= (-3-7i)/2

Now, equating Real and Imaginary parts on both sides we get

x = -3/2 and y = -7/2

∴ Thee real values of x and y are -3/2, -7/2

7. Find the modulus of [(1 + i)/(1 – i)] – [(1 – i)/(1 + i)]

Solution:

Given:

[(1 + i)/(1 – i)] – [(1 – i)/(1 + i)]

So,

Z = [(1 + i)/(1 – i)] – [(1 – i)/(1 + i)]

Let us simplify, we get

= [(1+i) (1+i) – (1-i) (1-i)] / (12 – i2)

= [12 + i2 + 2(1)(i) – (12 + i2 – 2(1)(i))] / (1 – (-1)) [Since, i2 = -1]

= 4i/2

= 2i

We know that for a complex number Z = (a+ib) it’s magnitude is given by |z| = (a2 + b2)

So,

RD Sharma Solutions for Class 11 Maths Chapter 13 – Complex Numbers image - 24

3cos θ = 0 (since, 1 + 4cos2θ ≥ 1)

cos θ = 0

cos θ = cos π/2

θ = [(2n+1)π] / 2, for n ∈ Z

Let us multiply and divide by (1 – i)2

RD Sharma Solutions for Class 11 Maths Chapter 13 – Complex Numbers image - 25

For n = 1,

Z = -2i1+1

= -2i2

= 2, which is a real number.

∴ The smallest positive integer value of n is 1.

Solution:

Given:

[(1+i)/(1-i)]3 – [(1-i)/(1+i)]3 = x + iy

Let us rationalize the denominator, we get

RD Sharma Solutions for Class 11 Maths Chapter 13 – Complex Numbers image - 26

i3–(-i)3 = x + iy

2i3 = x + iy

2i2.i = x + iy

2(-1)I = x + iy

-2i = x + iy

Equating Real and Imaginary parts on both sides we get

x = 0 and y = -2

∴ The values of x and y are 0 and -2.

x = -2/5 and y = 4/5

so,

x + y = -2/5 + 4/5

= (-2+4)/5

= 2/5

∴ The value of (x + y) is 2/5

Where,

|Z| = modulus of complex number = (x2 + y2)

θ = arg (z) = argument of complex number = tan-1 (|y| / |x|)

(i) 1 + i

Given: Z = 1 + i

So now,

|Z| = (x2 + y2)

= (12 + 12)

= (1 + 1)

= 2

θ = tan-1 (|y| / |x|)

= tan-1 (1 / 1)

= tan-1 1

Since x > 0, y > 0 complex number lies in 1st quadrant and the value of θ is 00≤θ≤900.

θ = π/4

Z = 2 (cos (π/4) + i sin (π/4))

∴ Polar form of (1 + i) is 2 (cos (π/4) + i sin (π/4))

(ii) √3 + i

Given: Z = √3 + i

So now,

|Z| = (x2 + y2)

= ((√3)2 + 12)

= (3 + 1)

= 4

= 2

θ = tan-1 (|y| / |x|)

= tan-1 (1 / √3)

Since x > 0, y > 0 complex number lies in 1st quadrant and the value of θ is 00≤θ≤900.

θ = π/6

Z = 2 (cos (π/6) + i sin (π/6))

∴ Polar form of (√3 + i) is 2 (cos (π/6) + i sin (π/6))

(iii) 1 – i

Given: Z = 1 – i

So now,

|Z| = (x2 + y2)

= (12 + (-1)2)

= (1 + 1)

= 2

θ = tan-1 (|y| / |x|)

= tan-1 (1 / 1)

= tan-1 1

Since x > 0, y > 0 complex number lies in 1st quadrant and the value of θ is 00≤θ≤900.

θ = -π/4

Z = 2 (cos (-π/4) + i sin (-π/4))

= 2 (cos (π/4) – i sin (π/4))

∴ Polar form of (1 – i) is 2 (cos (π/4) – i sin (π/4))

(iv) (1 – i) / (1 + i)

Given: Z = (1 – i) / (1 + i)

Let us multiply and divide by (1 – i), we get

RD Sharma Solutions for Class 11 Maths Chapter 13 – Complex Numbers image - 41

= 0 – i

So now,

|Z| = (x2 + y2)

= (02 + (-1)2)

= (0 + 1)

= 1

θ = tan-1 (|y| / |x|)

= tan-1 (1 / 0)

= tan-1

Since x ≥ 0, y < 0 complex number lies in 4th quadrant and the value of θ is -900≤θ≤00.

θ = -π/2

Z = 1 (cos (-π/2) + i sin (-π/2))

So now,

|Z| = (x2 + y2)

= ((1/2)2 + (-1/2)2)

= (1/4 + 1/4)

= (2/4)

= 1/2

θ = tan-1 (|y| / |x|)

= tan-1 ((1/2) / (1/2))

= tan-1 1

Since x > 0, y < 0 complex number lies in 4th quadrant and the value of θ is -900≤θ≤00.

θ = -π/4

Z = 1/2 (cos (-π/4) + i sin (-π/4))

= 1/2 (cos (π/4) – i sin (π/4))

∴ Polar form of 1/(1 + i) is 1/2 (cos (π/4) – i sin (π/4))

So now,

|Z| = (x2 + y2)

= ((-1/2)2 + (1/2)2)

= (1/4 + 1/4)

= (2/4)

= 1/2

θ = tan-1 (|y| / |x|)

= tan-1 ((1/2) / (1/2))

= tan-1 1

Since x < 0, y > 0 complex number lies in 2nd quadrant and the value of θ is 900≤θ≤1800.

θ = 3π/4

Z = 1/2 (cos (3π/4) + i sin (3π/4))

∴ Polar form of (1 + 2i) / (1 – 3i) is 1/2 (cos (3π/4) + i sin (3π/4))

(vii) sin 120o – i cos 120o

Given: Z = sin 120o – i cos 120o

= 3/2 – i (-1/2)

= 3/2 + i (1/2)

So now,

|Z| = (x2 + y2)

= ((3/2)2 + (1/2)2)

= (3/4 + 1/4)

= (4/4)

= 1

= 1

θ = tan-1 (|y| / |x|)

= tan-1 ((1/2) / (3/2))

= tan-1 (1/3)

Since x > 0, y > 0 complex number lies in 1st quadrant and the value of θ is 00≤θ≤900.

θ = π/6

Z = 1 (cos (π/6) + i sin (π/6))

∴ Polar form of 3/2 + i (1/2) is 1 (cos (π/6) + i sin (π/6))

Given: Z = -16 / (1 + i√3)

Let us multiply and divide by (1 – i3), we get

RD Sharma Solutions for Class 11 Maths Chapter 13 – Complex Numbers image - 44

So now,

|Z| = (x2 + y2)

= ((-4)2 + (43)2)

= (16 + 48)

= (64)

= 8

θ = tan-1 (|y| / |x|)

= tan-1 ((43) / 4)

= tan-1 (3)

Since x < 0, y > 0 complex number lies in 2nd quadrant and the value of θ is 900≤θ≤1800.

θ = 2π/3

Z = 8 (cos (2π/3) + i sin (2π/3))

∴ Polar form of -16 / (1 + i√3) is 8 (cos (2π/3) + i sin (2π/3))

2. Write (i25)3 in polar form.

Given: Z = (i25)3 

= i75

= i74. i

= (i2)37. i

= (-1)37. i

= (-1). i

= – i

= 0 – i

So now,

|Z| = (x2 + y2)

= (02 + (-1)2)

= (0 + 1)

= 1

θ = tan-1 (|y| / |x|)

= tan-1 (1 / 0)

= tan-1

Since x ≥ 0, y < 0 complex number lies in 4th quadrant and the value of θ is -900≤θ≤00.

θ = -π/2

Z = 1 (cos (-π/2) + i sin (-π/2))

= 1 (cos (π/2) – i sin (π/2))

∴ Polar form of (i25)3 is 1 (cos (π/2) – i sin (π/2))

3. Express the following complex numbers in the form r (cos θ + i sin θ):

(i) 1 + i tan α

(ii) tan α – i

(iii) 1 – sin α + i cos α

(iv) (1 – i) / (cos π/3 + i sin π/3)

Solution:

(i) 1 + i tan α

Given: Z = 1 + i tan α

We know that the polar form of a complex number Z = x + iy is given by Z = |Z| (cos θ + i sin θ)

Where,

|Z| = modulus of complex number = (x2 + y2)

θ = arg (z) = argument of complex number = tan-1 (|y| / |x|)

We also know that tan α is a periodic function with period π.

So α is lying in the interval [0, π/2) ∪ (π/2, π].

Let us consider case 1:

α ∈ [0, π/2)

So now,

|Z| = r = (x2 + y2)

= (12 + tan2 α)

= ( sec2 α)

= |sec α| since, sec α is positive in the interval [0, π/2)

θ = tan-1 (|y| / |x|)

= tan-1 (tan α / 1)

= tan-1 (tan α)

= α since, tan α is positive in the interval [0, π/2)

∴ Polar form is Z = sec α (cos α + i sin α)

Let us consider case 2:

α ∈ (π/2, π]

So now,

|Z| = r = (x2 + y2)

= (12 + tan2 α)

= ( sec2 α)

= |sec α|

= – sec α since, sec α is negative in the interval (π/2, π]

θ = tan-1 (|y| / |x|)

= tan-1 (tan α / 1)

= tan-1 (tan α)

= -π + α since, tan α is negative in the interval (π/2, π]

θ = -π + α [since, θ lies in 4th quadrant]

Z = -sec α (cos (α – π) + i sin (α – π))

∴ Polar form is Z = -sec α (cos (α – π) + i sin (α – π))

(ii) tan α – i

Given: Z = tan α – i

We know that the polar form of a complex number Z = x + iy is given by Z = |Z| (cos θ + i sin θ)

Where,

|Z| = modulus of complex number = (x2 + y2)

θ = arg (z) = argument of complex number = tan-1 (|y| / |x|)

We also know that tan α is a periodic function with period π.

So α is lying in the interval [0, π/2) ∪ (π/2, π].

Let us consider case 1:

α ∈ [0, π/2)

So now,

|Z| = r = (x2 + y2)

= (tan2 α + 12)

= ( sec2 α)

= |sec α| since, sec α is positive in the interval [0, π/2)

= sec α

θ = tan-1 (|y| / |x|)

= tan-1 (1/tan α)

= tan-1 (cot α) since, cot α is positive in the interval [0, π/2)

= α – π/2 [since, θ lies in 4th quadrant]

Z = sec α (cos (α – π/2) + i sin (α – π/2))

∴ Polar form is Z = sec α (cos (α – π/2) + i sin (α – π/2))

Let us consider case 2:

α ∈ (π/2, π]

So now,

|Z| = r = (x2 + y2)

= (tan2 α + 12)

= ( sec2 α)

= |sec α|

= – sec α since, sec α is negative in the interval (π/2, π]

θ = tan-1 (|y| / |x|)

= tan-1 (1/tan α)

= tan-1 (cot α)

= π/2 + α since, cot α is negative in the interval (π/2, π]

θ = π/2 + α [since, θ lies in 3th quadrant]

Z = -sec α (cos (π/2 + α) + i sin (π/2 + α))

∴ Polar form is Z = -sec α (cos (π/2 + α) + i sin (π/2 + α))

(iii) 1 – sin α + i cos α

Given: Z = 1 – sin α + i cos α

By using the formulas,

Sin2 θ + cos2 θ = 1

Sin 2θ = 2 sin θ cos θ

Cos 2θ = cos2 θ – sin2 θ

So,

We know that the polar form of a complex number Z = x + iy is given by Z = |Z| (cos θ + i sin θ)

Where,

|Z| = modulus of complex number = (x2 + y2)

θ = arg (z) = argument of complex number = tan-1 (|y| / |x|)

Now,

We know that sine and cosine functions are periodic with period 2π

Here we have 3 intervals:

0 ≤ α ≤ π/2

π/2 ≤ α ≤ 3π/2

3π/2 ≤ α ≤ 2π

Let us consider case 1:

In the interval 0 ≤ α ≤ π/2

Cos (α/2) > sin (α/2) and also 0 < π/4 + α/2 < π/2

So,

RD Sharma Solutions for Class 11 Maths Chapter 13 – Complex Numbers image - 47

∴ Polar form is Z = 2 (cos (α/2) – sin (α/2)) (cos (π/4 + α/2) + i sin (π/4 + α/2))

Let us consider case 2:

In the interval π/2 ≤ α ≤ 3π/2

Cos (α/2) < sin (α/2) and also π/2 < π/4 + α/2 < π

So,

RD Sharma Solutions for Class 11 Maths Chapter 13 – Complex Numbers image - 48

Since, (1 – sin α) > 0 and cos α < 0 [Z lies in 4th quadrant]

= α/2 – 3π/4

∴ Polar form is Z = –2 (cos (α/2) – sin (α/2)) (cos (α/2 – 3π/4) + i sin (α/2 – 3π/4))

Let us consider case 3:

In the interval 3π/2 ≤ α ≤ 2π

Cos (α/2) < sin (α/2) and also π < π/4 + α/2 < 5π/4

So,

RD Sharma Solutions for Class 11 Maths Chapter 13 – Complex Numbers image - 49

θ = tan-1 (tan (π/4 + α/2))

= π – (π/4 + α/2) [since, θ lies in 1st quadrant and tan’s period is π]

= α/2 – 3π/4

∴ Polar form is Z = –2 (cos (α/2) – sin (α/2)) (cos (α/2 – 3π/4) + i sin (α/2 – 3π/4))

(iv) (1 – i) / (cos π/3 + i sin π/3)

Given: Z = (1 – i) / (cos π/3 + i sin π/3)

Let us multiply and divide by (1 – i3), we get

We know that the polar form of a complex number Z = x + iy is given by Z = |Z| (cos θ + i sin θ)

Where,

|Z| = modulus of complex number = (x2 + y2)

θ = arg (z) = argument of complex number = tan-1 (|y| / |x|)

Now,

Since x < 0, y < 0 complex number lies in 3rd quadrant and the value of θ is 1800≤θ≤-900.

= tan-1 (2 + 3)

= -7π/12

Z = 2 (cos (-7π/12) + i sin (-7π/12))

= 2 (cos (7π/12) – i sin (7π/12))

∴ Polar form of (1 – i) / (cos π/3 + i sin π/3) is 2 (cos (7π/12) – i sin (7π/12))

Solution:

Given:

|z1| = |z2| and arg (z1) + arg (z2) = π

Let us assume arg (z1) = θ

arg (z2) = π – θ

We know that in the polar form, z = |z| (cos θ + i sin θ)

z1 = |z1| (cos θ + i sin θ) …………. (i)

z2 = |z2| (cos (π – θ) + i sin (π – θ))

= |z2| (-cos θ + i sin θ)

= – |z2| (cos θ – i sin θ)

Hence proved.

6. Express sin π/5 + i (1 – cos π/5) in polar form.

Solution:

Given:

Z = sin π/5 + i (1 – cos π/5)

By using the formula,

sin 2θ = 2 sin θ cos θ

1- cos 2θ = 2 sin2 θ

So,

Z = 2 sin π/10 cos π/10 + i (2 sin2 π/10)

= 2 sin π/10 (cos π/10 + i sin π/10)

∴ The polar form of sin π/5 + i (1 – cos π/5) is 2 sin π/10 (cos π/10 + i sin π/10)
