So I've been solving some basic instantaneous power/ average power problems and I've been asked to "draw" $$p(t)$$ which is the instantaneous power function of the circuit, I guess there are two ways to accomplish this task:
first, you basically sketch the voltage waveform and the current wave form and keep picking points on both traces and multiplying them (I don't think i'm going to do this)
second, and this is what I actually did, found $$p(t) = ((VmIm)/2)(cos(2wt+ϴv+ϴi) + avgpower$$
and sketched the graph manually.
ok my question is if it's possible to check my answer using any simulation program -multisim maybe- by constructing the circuit and plotting the power waveform just like the oscilloscope plots voltage waveform?
