The power consumed in an inductive circuit will be
  • a)
    VIcosφ
  • b)
    VIsinφ
  • c)
    VI
  • d)
    none of these
Correct answer is option 'A'. Can you explain this answer?

In a purely inductive circuit, power consumed = Q = VIsin φ. In inductive circuit (having both R and L) power is consumed by resistor R which is P = VI cos φ.
