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 is ripple factor for full wave rectifier?

A: Without a capacitor to smooth out the DC there will be no ripple just pulsating DC at double of the input frequency. But if you add a capacitor then the ripple will be directly related to the load.

Does a magnetic fIEld have an effect on a capacitor placed in between the plates?

Does a magnetic field have an effect on a capacitor when it is placed between the plates? Yes, a magnetic field between the plates of a capacitor would have some effect. Without more information it is difficult to determine how much.

What is the difference between voltage gain obtained with bypass capacitor and without the bypass capacitor?

A: A TRANSISTOR gain is determined by current flow on the collector by adding a resistor to the emitter this current flow is reduced by adding or bypassing this resistor with a capacitor the net effect is that this emitter resistor will be reduced in value as frequency increases therefore change gain as a function of frequency input

Why do you use capacitors on fan motors or blowers?

We use capacitor on fan motor or blower to create phase difference between two winding(Starting & running). This phase difference introduce starting torque on fan motor. Otherwise without capacitor the torque produced in positive Half cycle of AC supply is nullify by the torque produced in negative half cycle.

If you take out the battery in a capacitor before inserting a dielectric will there still be charge on the dielectric?

The charge in a capacitor is between the plates. The dielectric is only an insulator that allows the plates to be very close without touching and discharging the charge. There is no battery in a capacitor.
