What is the potential difference across R1 (in volts) ?
D2 is reverse biased, hence, no current flow through it.
6 - iR2 - iR1=0
Now potential difference across R1
The correct answer is: 2
The 6 Volts zener diode shown in figure has zero zener resistance and knee current of 5mA. The minimum value of R (in Ω), so that the voltage across it does not fall below 6 Volts is ?

Calculate the diffusion current density when the concentration of electron varies from the 1 * 1018 to 7 * 1017 cm-3 over a distance of 0.10 cm. D = 225cm2/s
J = eDdn / dx
J = 1.6 * 10-19 * 225 * (1018 - (7 * 1017)) / 0.1
The centre tap full-wave single phase rectifier circuit uses 2 diodes as shown in the given figure. The rms voltage across each diode is (in Volts)
Peak inverse voltage (PIV) across each diode =when diode is conducting (during half cycle) the voltage across the diode is zero.
Hence, rms value of voltage across the diode =
The correct answer is: 339.4
A half-wave rectifier employs a transformer with turn ratio n1 : n2 = 12 : 1. If primary coil is connected to the power mains 220V, 50Hz. If the diode resistance in forward bias is negligible, what is the peak inverse voltage (in Volts) of the diode?
The turn ratio of transform ation is 12:1. So if primary coil is connected to power mains o f 220V , then potential of secondary coil is Volts. In a half-wave rectifier,is the maximum voltage appearing across the transformer secondary coil. Now. peak inverse voltage, for half wave rectifier in given as V0
The correct answer is: 25 .9
A 10V zener diode working as a voltage regulator operates from a source that varies from 5 V to 15V, the series resistance is 0.1kΩ and the load draws a current that varies from 0 to 20mA. The power dissipation in the zener diode under worst case (in Watts) is?
For maximum power dissipation, current through zener diode should be maximum which is maximum when total current in the circuit is maximum i.e. Vs = 15V.
The correct answer is: 0.5
When three zener diodes of identical specification having 10W, 10 V, l000 mA are connected in series to a 45V~dc power supply. Calculate the series resistance required to obtain 30 V regulated output (in Ω)?
Power of each diode = 10W
Potential = 10V
⇒ current = 1A
⇒ Resistance of each zener diode R
⇒ Equivalent resistance of three diodes connected in series
The correct answer is: 15
