**Argument/Amplitude of Complex Number in Different Quadrants**

**Let z = x+y be a non-zero complex number and can be represented in the form z = r(cosθ+ sinθ) where, r is the modulus and θ is the argument of z. From the figure, let z be represented by a line OP inclined at an angle θ with the positive direction of x-axis or the angle measured in the counter-clockwise direction and the distance of the point from O in the direction is r i.e. |z| Then, in right angled triangle OPM, right angled at M, we have **

** **

** **

**To measure the argument of any complex number (non-zero) in any quadrant, we must first calculate the argument of the respective complex number in first Quadrant. **

**let z = x +y be a complex number lying in any of the quadrants**

**and z' = |x| +|y| be a complex number lying in first quadrant **

**such that**

** = arg(z') = {argument calculated in first quadrant}**

**then the arg(z) calculated in respective quadrants can be calculated as**

**Important **

**a) Argument is measured along +iv direction of x-axis**

**b) Argument can also be measured in counter-clockwise direction.**

**c) Principle value of argument lies between **

**d) Angle(s) measured in anticlockwise direction is taken as +iv and those measured in clockwise direction are taken as -iv**

**Properties of Argument**

**P-1 arg **

**P-2 arg **

**P-3 arg **

**P-4 arg(z) = arg(|z|2) = arg (POSITIVE REAL NUMBER) = 0**

**P-5 arg {using P-2 and then P-3}**

**P-6 **

**P-7 If then where n**
