    What about the reverse diode position in parallel?


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Whatever I just said was about diodes in opposite direction. (1 in reverse and the other 1 in forward). If they are both in reverse position in parallel, there would be no flow of current. As I said, if they are in opposite in parallel, the current will flow.

    Okay with parallel:

    1. If in opposite directions (one forward and one in reverse) voltage flows through and current flows when voltage is 0.6v.

    2. If both are reversed no current flows at all, only voltage flows, so voltage if there were resistors would be 0 as V=IR.

    In series:

    Current does not flow at all at any times even if there were in opposite directions, they have to be in forward in order for current to flow

    Am I right

    Last ever question:

    If there were combination of diodes in parallel how would current and voltage vary?

    Yes correct! Last Q----It depends if the diodes are forward or reversed.

    Sure!!! you need to calculate the peak power of the lamp right? Our equation is p=iv------which is P(peak)=I(peak)V(peak)------So, our peak current is 2.8A. (we do not have peak voltage but RMS voltage which is 12V) So, peak voltage would (12 times sqrt2). So, your peak power is---P(peak)=2.8 times (12 times sqrt2) = 48W.---ANSWER.
    it appears I have the wrong exam board, i was looking at the date this is a mechanics question im refering too

    Say one reverse diode was in parallel with a forward and reverse diode? Thanks soo much for this.

    1 reverse and 1 forward would mean that the current will flow. voltage will not.

    I've attached the answers to all the long questions from june 2009 onwards
    Do you think any of these will be repeated?

    I think the 6 marker will be about the photoelectric effect in terms if wave and particles properties and what was observed

    These are least likely to be repeated since they came up in the exam not long ago.

    I though voltage always flows?

    In parallel, if the current flows, voltage will not. Remember the rule?? -----Forward bias - all current, almost no volts.
    Reverse bias - all volts, almost no current.

    And its the complete opposite for series diodes

    For that kind of question just learn the mark scheme, anyway very unlikely to come up as it came up last year

    When you increase the resistance, current increases but voltage decreases.
