    i just want to know if what is the effect of the coil resistance of an inductor in a circuit..?
    please answer me.
    thank u.

    Is this your homework?

    One answer lies twixt R and P, but depending on the circuit, this may not be the major issue, as it may have to do with P when I go through R.

    In that case I'd consider the "Q" of the inductor and (I^2)R losses.

    Both of which you may have gleaned from my previous post :)

    edit: Depending on the circuit, one or both of the above may be important (or even critical) or, alternately, of no particular concern...

    If this is a basic question, the basic answer is:
    It depends on your operating frequency.
