1. What type of circuit is this? Half-wave rectifier 2. Sketch the circuit (MULTI-SIM). 3. Explain why the circuits works? It converts AC voltage to DC voltage. Current flows through the diode in one direction, showing only the positive half-wave on the oscilloscope. The negative half-wave is suppressed, while the positive half-wave appears across the load. 4. Identify each element in the circuit and explain its purpose. • 3 resistors- resistors resists the current flowing through the circuit. • AC Power Supply- provides the alternating current. • Diode- allows the current to flow in one direction.
