Homework Help: Plot the graphs of power dissipated in pure resistor

  1. Apr 18, 2010 #1
    I am trying to plot the graphs of power dissipated in pure resistor , pure capacitor and pure inductor against time .

    My question is when i plot the voltage and current graph for pure resistor , i know they are in the same phase , but V0 is greater or Io is greater , i think Vo is greater since v=IR .

    I have the same problems for pure capacitor . Here , I leads V by pi/2 and Io=Vo omega C

    so Io is greater ?

    I ask this because i do not know which one to put higher in my graphs (V or I)
