## Homework Statement

I was asked to calculate the value of the resistance/phase of the load in balanced 3-phase purely resistive load. it stated that there are two different ways to obtain the solution.

## Homework Equations

W1 = VL IL cos (30-theta)

W2 = VL IL cos (30+theta)

where Voltage Line = 110, Line current = 0.86, W1=77 and W2=76.5

## The Attempt at a Solution

W1+W2=153.5

theta=tan

^{-1}([tex]\sqrt{3}[/tex] * (W1-W2)/(W1+W2))

thus, I obtained theta = 0.810 where cos theta (pf) = 0.999

from this, how I calculated the resistance? is it only R=V/I = 110/0.86 = 127.91? or using the wattmeter result?
