Solutions

Chapter I, Problem 16E
To determine

To find: The complex conjugate and modulus of the number 1+22i.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 16E

The complex conjugate of the number 1+22i is 122i.

The modulus of the number 1+22i is 3.

Explanation of Solution

Obtain the complex conjugate of number 1+22i.

Use the property of conjugates z+w¯=z¯+w¯ and zw¯=z¯w¯ to simplify the expression as follows.

1+22i¯=1¯+22i¯=1¯+(22¯(i¯))=122i[i¯=i]

Thus, the complex conjugate of the number 1+22i is 122i.

The modulus of a complex number z=a+ib is |z|=a2+b2.

From the above definition, obtain the modulus of the number 1+22i.

|1+22i|=(1)2+(22)2=1+8=9=3

Thus, the modulus of the number 1+22i is 3.
