Resistive

inductive

No, a geyser is a resistive load.

Resistive load ,Capacitive load,Inductive load

For an inductive load, the current lags the voltage by 90 degs. Hence the power factor for an inductive load is 0. For a capacitive load, the current leads the voltage by 90 degs. Hence the power factor for a capacitive load is 0. For a resistive load, the current and the voltage are in phase. Hence the power factor for a resistive load is 1.
