Power Factor Formula For Single Phase

\(Power\,Factor=\frac{True\,Power}{Apparent\,Power}\) \(cos\phi = \frac{R}{Z}\) \(Power\,Factor=\frac{119.365\,W}{169.256\,VA}\) \(Power\,Factor = 0.705\) \(Cos\,45.152\,degrees=0.705\)

Here, it is noted that single phase power factor is less than 1.

Note: For a purely resistive circuit, the power factor is 1.
