"A 'purely capacitive' circuit is a theoretical, or 'ideal', circuit, in which the resistance and inductance of the circuit is ignored, and in which the load current theoretically leads the supply voltage by exactly 90 electrical degrees. It is often used as a means of introducing students to the behaviour of 'real' a.c. circuit which contain contain resistance and inductance, as well as capacitance."
Is this what is a purely capacitive means?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, that's what purely capacitive means. However, as @Mashy said, purely capacitive circuits are not possible in reality. It's really just a learning tool used in basic electricity courses.
