**[SOLVED] Significance of Average value of a AC signal**

Hello,

I would like to know the significance of average value in a AC circuit. Let's consider a sinusoidal ac source with only a resistor in the circuit. The rms value of voltage and current indicate the equivalent DC value which would dissipate the same heat in the same circuit. So on similar terms what will the average value signify ?

Thanks
