Significance of FS sin(theta)

  1. In electrical circuits, VIcosθ is actual electrical power while VIsinθ is magnetic power. This expression looks very similar to W=FScosθ, the work done by a force relation. Is there some significance to FSsinθ in a similar way?

    No.
    Context is everything. Look at the derivations to see: where do the equations come from?
