Hello everyone, I had a couple questions about capacitors and diodes.
- Can a capacitor and a diode be used in series to store a charge? For example, if a diode is oriented such that current can only flow across it and store on a capacitor plate on the other side, and then the voltage source is removed, the capacitor will not be able to discharge in the reverse direction because of the diode, am I correct?
- How does a coupling capacitor work?
- If a zener diode has a current flow over it in its reverse bias direction, does it break permanently?
