If you need to explain active power, reactive power and apparent power to somebody which is not familiar with EE then I recommend to have a beer.

That's really poor maths. The reactive power need to be orthogonal to the active power.

If you're after such details then there isn't enough beer involved.  ;D

So you think additional beer will straighten things? I thought it worked the other way around.

If it will not then it wasn't enough beer.

I tried that, but the beer fell out.

You owe me a beer now, btw.

sure it's not enough beer if it's not send you to the reactive power... there are funnier things than resting in peace... like blaming "The Other" for anything wrong in this world...

Could it be the beer has an imaginary component? This seems too complex for me.
Currently developing STM8 and STM32. Past includes 6809, Z80, 8086, PIC, MIPS, PNX1302, and some 8748 and 6805. Check out my public code on github. https://github.com/unfrozen

I always considered the head on a beer an imaginary component.
