**Getting powers from Ac Circuit**

## Homework Statement

Hi guys,, need help with the following question :

The rms voltage and current of an inductive load are 110V & 10.

The frequency of the voltage waveform is 60 Hz. The instantaneous power

consumed by the load has zero average value.Calculate :

a. The real power consumed by the load.

b. The reactive power consumed by the load.

c. The power factor.

d. The frequency of the reactive power

## The Attempt at a Solution

OK, first things first ,, what does the question mean by saying

?? and I know that real power equal I^2 R for series & V^2/R for parallel but the problem it doesn't say if it's series or parallel ,, so my second question is how to start solving the problem ?? (Don't give me answers please just tips )The instantaneous power consumed by the load has zero average value

thanks in advance
