How to measure
voltage?

To measure a D.C voltage:

The unknown voltage, V = (Y-gain) h
To measure a A.C voltage:
Peak-to-peak voltage, Vpp = (Y-gains) h
Peak voltage, Vp = (Y-gains)

Short time intervals, t = no. of divisions between two pulses time-base value.
Examples
1. The diagram shows the trace on the screen of a CRO when an a.c voltage is connected to the
Y-input. The Y-gain control is set at 2 V/div and the time base is off.
Calculate the value of :
(a) Peak-to-peak voltage, Vpp
(b)Peak voltage, Vp.

(a) n-type semiconductor

Silicon like Silicon doped with atoms such as or phosphorus. The

phosphorus atoms have .. valence electrons. The fifth electron is free to move through
the silicon. The silicon has ... as majority charge-carriers and it thus
known as an n-type semiconductor.
(b) p-type semiconductors

What is
semiconductors
diodes?

Semiconductor like Silicon doped with .. atoms such as or indium

Semiconductor Diode
A diode is a component (device) that allows _______________to flow in ________ direction only.
A diode acts like a one-way valve to electric current.

The following figure shows structure and the symbol of a semiconductor diode :

What is the
function of
diodes?

How does the p-n junction diode work?

Any further movement of _____________ across the boundary in the depletion layer will be repelled
by the charges in the layer.

The layer of the negative charge in the p-type region will prevent the majority charge carriers from the
__________ region(the electrons) from crossing the boundary. Similarly , the positive charge layer in
the n-type region will prevent the majority charge carriers from the __________region(the holes) from
crossing the boundary in the opposite direction.
