Why does the average AC power decrease as the phase shift of the electric current and voltage fluctuations increases?

The average power value is proportional to the cosine of the phase shift. As the angle increases, the cosine value decreases.

Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
