What is a function of a rectifier?
The Rectifier is an electronic device, which converts an AC waveform(Usually a Bi-directional waveform with Zero Average value) to a Pulsating DC waveform (Uni-directional waveform with Nonzero Average value). As AC wave (Sinusoidal) has two half cycles, namely - Positive Half cycle & Negative Half cycle If a Rectifier does it's operation only in one half of the cycles, it is known as Half Wave Rectifier. Similarly, If a Rectifier does it's operation in both the half cycles, it is known as Full Wave Rectifier.

rectifier is important device in electronics or in process of converting alternating quantities into direct quantitydue to which we can easily convert AC INTO DC..............…
usually to convert AC to DC.
i don know
Alternating sources of AC and DC power
One place is in telecommunication racks, where AC power needs to be converted to DC to power the telecommunication equipment. And their are plenty of other applications as wel…l.
A rectifier can convert AC to pulsating DC.
The function of 4 diodes in a bridge full wave rectifier is to make the output unidirectional and to increase the efficiency of output
There are basically two types of rectifiers one is the half wave rectifier and the other is the full wave rectifies. The full wave rectifier is further classified into two typ…es namely the bridge rectifier and the center tapped rectifier.There are also silicon controlled rectifiers nowadays.
Answer A rectifier turns AC to DC
A rectifier turns the Alternating Current (AC) produced by the Alternator into Direct Current (DC) that your car uses.
previous answer: "i think its like from a mineral but like more refined than normal minertal turps. what do you rekon" There are several types of turpentine. Rectified turpent…ine is, arguably, a bit of a misnomer when it comes to 'true' turpentine. While regular or distilled turpentine is the sap from a tree (normally pine) tapped in a similar manner to maple syrup, rectified turpentine goes through an entirely different process. Rectified turpentine is made by literally mashing up trunk, limbs and leaves of a tree, then steaming out the spirits. Because of this, rectified turpentine has water, and therefore excess oxygen which can cause undesireable drying patterns in projects or art. Hope this helps! - Krystalanna
The rectifier "rectifies", or converts, AC current coming from the AC dynamo (alternator) into DC current that the battery and and electrical accessories can use.
Without a rectifier electronics is impossible!
is a device that smoothen your half-wave rectification into a full-wave rectification after using a 4 diode and 1 resistor , after adding a capacitor , there will be a almost …steady output , it charges the capacitor when is forward biased which is the first half wave , and discharge when is reverse biased to stablelize the wave into a almost same potential difference compare to a.c
A rectifier is an electrical device that converts alternating current (AC), which periodically reverses direction, to direct current (DC), which flows in only one directio…n.
The capacitor follows the rectifier to smooth the DC output. It has a safety resistor in parallel to discharge it safely when it is turned off. The resistor value can be c…hosen produce a given time-constant, e.g. a 1000 uf capacitor might have a 3k3 resistor across, which gives a 3.3 second time-constant. The capacitor is then discharged to 1% voltage in 5 time-constants, 16.5 seconds in this case.
