### Discussion :: Alternating Current and Voltage - General Questions (Q.No.5)

5.

One sine wave has a positive-going zero crossing at 15° and another sine wave has a positive-going zero crossing at 55°. The phase angle between the two waveforms is

 [A]. 0° [B]. 45° [C]. 40° [D]. none of the above

Explanation:

No answer description available for this question.

 Rohan said: (May 13, 2011) Phase angle is the difference between angles of two waveforms- so Wave 1 = 15 deg and wave 2 = 55 deg so Phase angle = 55-15 = 40 deg.

 Suresh Raju said: (Aug 15, 2015) Phase angle is difference between two magnitudes degrees.

 Saddam Hussain said: (Oct 14, 2017) Phase angle is difference between two magnitudes degrees.

 V.Jagadeesh said: (Jan 8, 2018) Phase angle is the difference between two magnitudes or degrees what is given in the question? 55-15=40.

 Dasarathi Bhuyan said: (Mar 18, 2018) Thanks for explaining the answer.

 Jaydeep P. said: (Aug 19, 2019) Phase angle is nothing but phase difference or phase displacement of two wave from. So, 55 - 15 = 40.

 Sam said: (Sep 7, 2019) C is the answer because phase difference =Phase 1 - phase2 = 50-15 = 40.
