Explanation:-
Answer : DDiscuss it below :Rakhal Bauri Said on 2020-11-24 14:44:42Read this carefully, it's power factor not power factor angle. Pf angle in purely inductive or capacitive circuit is 90. And cos90 = 0. In resistive circuit the pf angle or phase angle is 0. And cos0 = 1. I hope you guys get it. Arundeep Said on 2017-08-29 10:17:35Read question carefully "zero" not unity in resistance case pf always be unity but in inductance & capacitance case it can be zero is it clear now Akash Said on 2017-08-26 12:33:27you are right abijeet........... Abhijit Said on 2017-06-19 10:54:14in Resistive ckt V & I are in phase..so pf=0 . in inductv ckt I legs the V by 90° & in capacitv ckt I leads V by 90°..so how its Ans is -D !!
