### Usually AC quantities have the x-axis as time, but phase shifts are done in angles. How is there not a unit conflict?

This feels like a very specific and stupid question, but I have studied AC circuits for a while already. I just didn't think about it that much, but why is it established that the x-axis we use for ...
