# Extracting the real and imaginary parts of an NumPy array of complex numbers

Numpy library gives us functions such as `real() `and `imag()` to find real and imaginary parts of a complex number.

• `real() :` To find real part of the complex number
• `imag() :` To find imaginary part of the complex number

Example 1 :

 `# importing the module ` `import` `numpy as np ` ` `  `# creating a NumPy array ` `complex_num ``=` `np.array([``-``1` `+` `9j``, ``2` `-` `77j``, ` `                        ``31` `-` `25j``, ``40` `-` `311j``, ` `                        ``72` `+` `11j``]) ` ` `  `# traversing the list ` `for` `i ``in` `range``(``len``(complex_num)): ` `      ``print``(``"{}. complex number is {}"``.``format``(i ``+` `1``, complex_num[i])) ` `      ``print` `(``"The real part is: {}"``.``format``(complex_num[i].real)) ` `      ``print` `(``"The imaginary part is: {}\n"``.``format``(complex_num[i].imag)) `

Output :

```1. complex number is (-1+9j)
The real part is: -1.0
The imaginary part is: 9.0

2. complex number is (2-77j)
The real part is: 2.0
The imaginary part is: -77.0

3. complex number is (31-25j)
The real part is: 31.0
The imaginary part is: -25.0

4. complex number is (40-311j)
The real part is: 40.0
The imaginary part is: -311.0

5. complex number is (72+11j)
The real part is: 72.0
The imaginary part is: 11.0
```

Example 2 : The imaginary value of real number will be 0.

 `# importing the module ` `import` `numpy as np ` ` `  `# creating a NumPy array ` `complex_num ``=` `np.array([``-``1``, ``31``, ``0.5``]) ` ` `  `# traversing the list ` `for` `i ``in` `range``(``len``(complex_num)): ` `      ``print``(``"{}. Number is {}"``.``format``(i ``+` `1``, complex_num[i])) ` `      ``print` `(``"The real part is: {}"``.``format``(complex_num[i].real)) ` `      ``print` `(``"The imaginary part is: {}\n"``.``format``(complex_num[i].imag)) `

Output :

```1. Number is -1.0
The real part is: -1.0
The imaginary part is: 0.0

2. Number is 31.0
The real part is: 31.0
The imaginary part is: 0.0

3. Number is 0.5
The real part is: 0.5
The imaginary part is: 0.0
```
