What is meant by reactive power in AC circuits? Power is joules per second.
Real power is the energy dissipated in the resistor per second.
What is meant by the reactive power? Does this mean the energy being stored in capacitor and inductor per second, or does it mean the stored energy supplied per second by the inductor or capacitor.
If we have a voltage source connect with an RLC network and after some time the inductor and capacitor are suddenly detached from the network and then they are supplied to another resistor with diffent value without voltage source then of course they will supply the energy at a new rate to the new resistance depending upon value the resistance. Will this not make the value of stored energy per second different from the value of energy supplied per second? Doesn't that give two different values of reactive power? Doesn't this mean that the reactive power is now changed for the same capacitor and inductor?
