# numpy.angle() in Python

`numpy.angle()` function is used when we want to compute the angle of the complex argument. A complex number is represented by “ x + yi ” where x and y are real number and `i= (-1)^1/2`. The angle is calculated by the formula `tan-1(x/y).`

Syntax : numpy.angle(z, deg=0)

Parameters :
z : [array_like] A complex number or sequence of complex numbers.
deg : [bool, optional] Return angle in degrees if True, radians if False (default).

Return :
angle : The counterclockwise angle from the positive real axis on the complex plane, with dtype as numpy.float64.

Code #1 : Working

Output :

```Input  list :  [2.0, 1j, (1+1j)]
output angle in radians :  [ 0.          1.57079633  0.78539816]
