# IMEXP

The `IMEXP` function returns the exponential of a complex number in rectangular form. It takes one argument which is the exponent (power) to which the complex number is raised. This function is commonly used in engineering and mathematical calculations involving complex numbers.

## Usage

Use the `IMEXP` formula with the syntax shown below, it has 1 required parameter:

Parameters:
1. exponent (required):
The power to which the complex number is raised. This must be a complex number in rectangular form.

## Examples

Here are a few example use cases that explain how to use the `IMEXP` formula in Google Sheets.

### Calculating the exponential of a complex number

The `IMEXP` function can be used to calculate the exponential of complex numbers in rectangular form, which is useful in engineering and mathematical calculations.

### Solving differential equations

The `IMEXP` function can be used to solve differential equations involving complex numbers, which arise in many areas of engineering and physics.

## Common Mistakes

`IMEXP` not working? Here are some common mistakes people make when using the `IMEXP` Google Sheets Formula:

### Incorrect number of arguments

The IMEXP formula requires one argument, which is the exponent. If you provide more or less than one argument, the formula will return an error. To fix this, make sure you only provide one argument.

### Invalid exponent

The exponent argument must be a numeric value. If you provide a non-numeric value, the formula will return an error. To fix this, make sure you provide a valid number as the exponent.

### Incorrect order of arguments

The IMEXP formula requires the exponent argument to be provided first. If you provide the argument in the wrong order, the formula will return an error. To fix this, make sure you provide the exponent argument first.

### Incorrect use of brackets

When using the IMEXP formula, you must enclose the exponent argument in brackets. If you omit the brackets, the formula will return an error. To fix this, make sure you enclose the exponent argument in brackets.

### Undefined function

If you receive an error message that says "IMEXP is not defined", it means that the formula is not recognised by Google Sheets. This may be because it is not a valid formula, or because it is a custom formula that has not been properly installed. To fix this, check the spelling and syntax of the formula, or contact the creator of the formula to ensure it is properly installed.

The following functions are similar to `IMEXP` or are often used with it in a formula:

• `IMABS`

The `IMABS` function returns the absolute value (modulus) of a complex number. This is useful when working with complex numbers in engineering or scientific calculations.

• `IMAGINARY`

The `IMAGINARY` function in Google Sheets returns the imaginary coefficient of a given complex number. The imaginary coefficient is the part of the complex number that is multiplied by the imaginary unit. This function is often used in engineering and scientific applications that involve complex numbers.

• `IMARGUMENT`

The `IMARGUMENT` function returns the argument corresponding to the given number in a complex number in rectangular form.

• `IMCONJUGATE`

The `IMCONJUGATE` formula returns the complex conjugate of a given complex number. This formula is commonly used in engineering and physics calculations involving complex numbers.
