The following formula is used to convert a rectangular form to a phasor form.
P = arctan (y/x)
- Where P is the phasor angle
- y is the imaginary part of the rectangular form x + jy
- x is the real part of the rectangular form
To calculate a phasor angle, take the inverse tangent of the result of the y value divided by the x value of the rectangular form equation.
A phasor is defined as the relative angle of a multiple-part solution that contains both a real and imaginary portion.

How to calculate a phasor angle
- First, determine the rectangular form
This will be an equation of the form x + jy, where x is the real part and y is the imaginary part.
- Next, separate x and y from the equation in step 1
Take out the real and imaginary portions.
- Calculate the phasor
Enter the x and y components into the formula above.
A rectangular form is a way to represent a vector in terms of a real and imaginary part.
A phasor is an angle that represents the angle between the x-axis and a vector.
