The IMSIN function returns the sine of a complex number in x + yi or x + yj text format
Syntax:= IMSIN ( inumber )
The IMSIN function syntax has the following arguments:
- Inumber: Required. A complex number for which you want the sine
Example: Let’s look at some Excel IMSIN function examples and explore how to use the IMSIN function as a worksheet function in Microsoft Excel:
Based on the Excel spreadsheet above, the following IMSIN examples would return:
- Complex Numbers in Excel are simply stored as text.
- When a text string in the format “a + bi” or “a + bj” is supplied to one of Excel’s built-in Complex Number Functions, this is interpreted as a complex number.
- The complex number functions can accept a simple numeric value, as this is equivalent to a complex number whose imaginary coefficient is equal to 0.
- Use COMPLEX to convert real and imaginary coefficients into a complex number.
- If inumber is not recognized as a complex number, IMSIN returns the #NUM! error.
- If inumber is a logical value, IMSIN returns the #VALUE! error
- The sine of a complex number is:
