## Theorem

Consider the unit circle $C$ whose center is at $\tuple {0, 0}$ on the complex plane.

Its equation is given by:

- $\cmod z = 1$

where $\cmod z$ denotes the complex modulus of $z$.

## Proof

From Equation of Unit Circle, the unit circle whose center is at the origin of the Cartesian $xy$ coordinate plane has the equation:

- $x^2 + y^2 = 1$

Identifying the Cartesian $xy$ coordinate plane with the complex plane:
