    hey tel me in a circuit we have a phase angle between the total current and resultant voltage of the circuit and power too
    But, what is the angle according to their axis.

    I beleave current is 180 Degrees out of phase.

    I'm not sure that totally understand your question, But:

    Plotted on a sine wave the current to voltage phase relationship in a circuit depends on whether the circuit is inductive, resistive or capacitive.

    Resistive, they are in phase.
    Inductive, current and volatge are 90 degrees out of phase, voltage leading.
    Capacitive, current and voltage are 90 degrees out of phase, current leading.

    Is this what you were asking?
