Q: 5. In Exercises and (Above examples), what is the net power absorbed by each circuit over a complete cycle. Explain your answer.

In the inductive circuit,

Value of current,

Value of voltage,

Hence, the net power absorbed can be obtained by the relation,

Where,

Phase difference between V and I

For a pure inductive circuit, the phase difference between alternating voltage and current is.

Hence, i.e., the net power is zero.

In the capacitive circuit,

Value of current,

Value of voltage,

Hence, the net power absorbed can obtained as:

For a pure capacitive circuit, the phase difference between alternating voltage and current is.

Hence, i.e., the net power is zero.
