Experiment 5: Half-wave Rectifiers Introduction : The purpose of this lab report is to inform the lab assistant that I’ve worked through the lab and gained an adequate amount of experience in doing so. The information in this lab deals with the observation of half-wave rectifiers and filter circuits. Objective: The objective of this lab is to observe the characteristics as well as the operation of half-wave rectifiers and filter circuits. Procedure: First, we began by connecting a diode and a 1kΩ resistor in series using the breadboard. We used a 20-volt p-p square wave at 60Hz as the input with minimum and maximum values of -10 volts and 10 volts. With the scope trigger on external and a sweep speed of 2ms/division, we will be able to observe more than one cycle. We then set both channels to 5V/division dc as well as place both probes on the input. Then we took one probe and placed it on the output to observe its behavior. For the next circuit, we needed both a 1µF and a 100µF capacitor. We used the 1µF first by connecting it in parallel with a 1kΩ resistor and in series with a diode. The
