    I am having trouble understanding what "Peak instantaneous Power" means. Is it asking for the apparent power or do I have to try and solve for when the voltage is at it's max and then solve for S?

    A voltage source 339 cos(100*PI*t -66 degrees) V is connected to a purely inductive load of 50 mH. What is the peak instantaneous power absorbed by the load?
