V1 = 1 volt @ 50°, and

V2 = 1 volt @ 30°.

It follows then that the relative phase shift between these two phasors can be expressed by any of the four following descriptions in terms of leading and lagging angle relationships.

1.) V1

__Leads__V2 by 20°

2.) V1

__Lags__V2 by 340°

3.) V2

__Leads__V1 by 340°

4.) V2

__Lags__V1 by 20°

**My question is:**By using the above lead/lag positive angle displacements, does is make any sense or is it possible to instead express these same angles in terms of their corresponding negative angle displacements? If you could express it in terms of negative angles how would it be done? Would it negate a lead or lag?

ie. Modify description 1.) to V1

__Leads__V2 by 20° OR EQUIVALENTLY -340°

I just want to know if this is legal mathematically/conceptually or even makes sense. Some links or references to conventions or interpretations would be nice. Thanks in advance.
