1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 2. Relevant equations If load is inductive current lags voltage. If load is capacitive voltage lags current 3. The attempt at a solution Current lags voltage since wire is inductive. So IF1 lags VF1 and IF2 lags VF2 But book says answer is C Why should VF1 lag IF1? This will happen only if load is capacitor. But that is not mentioned in question.
