What are the advantages and disadvantages of electronics filter?

Electronic filters are used for distinguish the frequency spectrum of EM Wave. it can be high pass filter low pass filter or band pass filter or band stop filter. Advantage are they are higly sensitive to frequency ranges , they amplify the signal partially. and disadvantage is that the value or inductor and capacitor depend on the temperature so effective temperature can cause the change in frequency to passed by that filter.

What is the difference between with capacitor rectifier and without capacitor rectifier?

To know the difference between capacitor and non capacitor rectifiers one must study what is the function of filter part.the filter part consists of capacitors or inductors or combination of both. the output of a simple diode rectifier is pulsating dc which means it consists of both dc part and ac part. filters are used to remove the ac part from such an output. capacitor filter means that a capacitor is used for filtering out the ac part. non capacitor or inductor filter means that an inductor is used for filtering out the ac part. There is another type called pii filter where both inductor and capacitor are used. Pii filter is the best kind of filter available

What effect does the series resistance of a capacitor used in a capacitor filter have on diode current and ripple voltage compared with an ideal capacitor of no resistance?

The effective resistance of the capacitor reduces the ripple current through the capacitor making it less effective in its function of smoothing the voltage. But if the capacitor filter is fed by a transformer and diodes, the resistance of the transformer exceeds that of the capacitor.

What is a filter capacitor?

Capacitor has many applications in electronics circuits, one of its application is in FILTERS. Mainly two types of Filters are formed with the help of capacitor namely, i)Low Pass Filter(LPF) ii)High Pass Filter(HPF) Impedance of capacitor is inversely propotional to the frequency, therefore a capacitor in series with resistor will act as Low Pass Filter. since all the high frequency are passed to ground.

Can a radial capacitor react different than an axial capacitor when being used as a filter for EMF?

Yes. The inductance of a radial capacitor can be different than an axial capacitor, particularly at RF, so the reaction as a filter for EMF could well be different.
