What is the magnitude of the product of π sub one is equal to π multiplied by the cos of π plus π sin of π and π sub two is π multiplied by the cos of π plus π sin π?
00:00:15.520 --> 00:00:20.820
In this question, weβre asked to determine the magnitude of the product of two given complex numbers.
00:00:20.890 --> 00:00:22.940
Thatβs π sub one and π sub two.
00:00:22.970 --> 00:00:25.470
And we can see these are given in polar form.
00:00:25.630 --> 00:00:34.930
And we recall this tells us the constant coefficient at the start of the expression is the magnitude of the complex number and the angle is the argument of the complex number.
00:00:35.290 --> 00:00:38.950
For example, π sub two has magnitude π and argument π.
00:00:39.300 --> 00:00:46.090
We can then use the properties of multiplying complex numbers given in polar form to find the magnitude of the product of these two numbers.
00:00:46.350 --> 00:00:54.100
We recall, to multiply two complex numbers given in polar form, we multiply the magnitude of both of these numbers and we add their arguments.
00:00:54.130 --> 00:01:02.110
π sub one times π sub two is π times π multiplied by the cos of π plus π plus π sin of π plus π.
00:01:02.390 --> 00:01:08.470
In other words, the magnitude of the product of two complex numbers is the product of their individual magnitudes.
00:01:08.500 --> 00:01:15.390
The magnitude of π sub one times π sub two is the magnitude of π sub one multiplied by the magnitude of π sub two.
00:01:15.650 --> 00:01:18.430
And we can use this to find the magnitude of this product.
00:01:18.690 --> 00:01:22.300
Since π sub one is given in polar form, we can read off its magnitude.
00:01:22.300 --> 00:01:23.330
Its magnitude is π.
00:01:23.360 --> 00:01:26.370
Similarly, we know π sub two has magnitude π .
00:01:26.540 --> 00:01:32.110
Therefore, the magnitude of π sub one times π sub two is equal to π multiplied by π .
