A semiconductor diode, the forward and reverse characteristics of which

A semiconductor diode, the forward and reverse

characteristics of which can be considered ideal, is

used in a half-wave rectifier circuit supplying a resistive

load of 1000 Ω. If the r.m.s. value of the sinusoidal

supply voltage is 230 V determine: (a) the peak diode

current; (b) the mean diode current; (c) the r.m.s.

diode current; (d) the power dissipated in the load.
