## What is the meaning of Wattless?

: the product of the reactive component of current by voltage or of the reactive component of voltage by current.

**What is the significance of Wattless current?**

The current in an AC circuit is said to be Wattless Current when the average power consumed in such circuit corresponds to Zero. Such current is also called as Idle Current.

### What is meant by Wattles component of current?

Solution: The wattless current is defined as the current flowing in an electrical AC circuit such that the circuit consists of either a capacitor or inductor, then the current flowing in the circuit is said to be wattless if the average power consumed in the circuit is zero.

**What is Wattless current 12th physics?**

Wattless current is defined as the current that does not consume energy and thus consumes no power.

## What is the power factor of Wattless current?

zero

In a wattless current real power is zeron and hence power factor is zero.

**What do you mean by Wattless current class 12?**

The current in an AC circuit is said to be Wattles Current when the average power consumed in such a circuit corresponds to Zero. Such current is also called as Idle Current. An AC circuit containing either capacitor or inductor current is said to wattles if the average power consumed in the circuit is zero.

### What is Wattless current Shaalaa?

Wattless current is defined as the current that does not consume energy and thus consumes no power. The average power consumed over a complete cycle in a purely inductive or purely capacitive circuit is zero, and thus the corresponding alternating current in the circuit is referred to as wattless current.

**In which case the current is Wattless?**

If the current is displaced by either a quarter of a cycle in time from voltage, the transmitted power would be in both directions. So there’s no transfer of net power and the current is called wattless.

## When the current in an AC circuit is Wattless?

EXPLANATION: Wattles current occurs in a circuit when the power dissipated is zero. As the name suggests wattless means no watt.

**What is power factor of Wattless current?**

### Which of the following is zero in Wattless current?

resistance and inductance both are zero.

**How can you obtain Wattless current in a circuit?**

Wattles current occurs in a circuit when the power dissipated is zero.

- Wattles current occurs in a circuit when the power dissipated is zero.
- As the name suggests wattless means no watt. Watt is the unit of Power.
- So the correct answer is option 4.
