Experiment 2 - The Diode in the Reverse Direction

Look at the circuit shown. You recognize the same circuit, however the anode of the diode is now connected to the negative terminal of the battery.

Circuit with a diode in reverse direction. (Enlarge)

Circuit diagram with a diode in reverse direction.

Now the light bulb remains dark. The diode will not let current pass, it is connected in the so-called reverse direction.

In the next experiment you get to know the ideal diode.
