A 220 V A.C. supply is connected between points A and B (Fig. 14.3). What will be the potential difference V across the capacitor?
Rms voltage of ac supply = 220 V
In the given circuit, the diode is in forward bias for the positive half of the applied ac cycle, and in reverse bias for the negative half. Thus, the diode will conduct only during the positive half of the ac cycle. Assuming the time constant of the capacitor C to be quite higher than the time period of the ac cycle resulting due to the diode, the voltage across the capacitor will be the peak voltage of the positive half cycle of the original ac cycle i.e.

Consider a box with three terminals on top of it as shown in Fig.14.18 (a):
Three components namely, two germanium diodes and one resistor are connected across these three terminals in some arrangement.
A student performs an experiment in which any two of these three terminals are connected in the circuit shown in Fig. 14.18 (b).
The student obtains graphs of current-voltage characteristics for unknown combination of components between the two terminals connected in the circuit.
The graphs are
(i) when A is positive and B is negative
(ii) when A is negative and B is positive
(iii) When B is negative and C is positive
(iv) When B is positive and C is negative
(v) When A is positive and C is negative
(vi) When A is negative and C is positive
From these graphs of current – voltage characteristic shown in Fig. 14.18 (c) to (h), determine the arrangement of components between A, B and C.
