I need to refresh my memory on some basics.

In an RL circuit consisting of a resistor and reactor......

Is the voltage drop across the resistor a function of he total current (real and reactive) times the resistor value or just the real portion?

Is the power dissipation across a resistor a function of the total current (real and reactive) times the resistor value (I^2R) or just the real portion?

If the resistor and inductor both represent 50% of circuit impedance then if you measure RMS voltage drop across either of them at any point in time you will see a 50% voltage drop compared to the source voltage? However I believe if you look at these on a scope you will see that they are not in phase so the voltage drops are occurring at different times? Can someone please refresh my memory on this?

Thanks
