# How can I plot a complex alpha in qiskit?

I'm new at QC, and one of the Qiskit quick exercises asks me to plot this ($$j$$ is the imaginary unit):
$$\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}} \begin{bmatrix} j\\1\end{bmatrix}$$, so I deduced $$\alpha=j$$ and beta= 1.

I know this is the equation: $$|q\rangle = \cos{\frac{\theta}{2}} |0\rangle + e^{j\phi}\sin{\frac{\theta}{2}} |1\rangle$$

I don't know how to plot it, any help would be appreciated, thanks.

EDIT: I'm sorry, I did miss a lot of details in my question, I've already plotted 1, 2, 3, and 4 from the quick exercise. I just don't have a clue how to convert #5 to spherical coordinates in order to plot it. • can you provide the exercises link, or explain more what you want to visualize, there is a lot of visualize method, you can take at look here qiskit.org/documentation/apidoc/…

I suggest you can learn to look at Qiskit documentation, and figuring out how to solve the exercises by yourself.
https://qiskit.org/documentation/apidoc/visualization.html

This is the way how I do the 5

from qiskit import QuantumCircuit
from qiskit.visualization import array_to_latex
qc = QuantumCircuit(1)
initi_ = np.array([0.+1j, 1+0.j])/np.sqrt(2)
display(array_to_latex(initi_))
qc.initialize(initi_,0)
state = Statevector.from_instruction(qc)
plot_bloch_multivector(state)

plot_bloch_vector([1,np.pi/2,np.pi*3/2], title="New Bloch Sphere", coord_type = 'spherical')
