The Internet has many places to ask questions about anything imaginable and find past answers on almost everything.

## How often does AC current change direction?

60 times a second

## What is the use of reverse current?

For constant temperatures, the reverse current is almost constant although the applied reverse voltage is increased up to a certain limit. Hence, it is also called reverse saturation current. The term is particularly applicable to mostly semiconductor junctions, especially diodes and thyristors.

## What device reduces current flow?

A resistor is a passive two-terminal electrical component that implements electrical resistance as a circuit element. In electronic circuits, resistors are used to reduce current flow, adjust signal levels, to divide voltages, bias active elements, and terminate transmission lines, among other uses.

## What is a reverse current relay?

A relay incorporated into a generator circuit to disconnect the generator from the battery when the battery voltage is greater than the generator voltage.

## How does a diode stop current flow?

When you manage to slip a battery into a circuit backward, then your diode will block any current from flowing, and this is called a reverse-biased state.

## Which direction does a diode flow?

forward direction

## Does an open circuit cause higher current flow?

Tech A says that an open circuit will typically cause higher current flow, which will blow the fuse. Tech B says that a short to ground can typically be found by checking voltage at different points in the circuit.

## Does amperage go up as more parallel paths are added?

Explanation: Tech B is correct, because amperage has been known to go up through when more parallel paths are added to a circuit. this is so because when more resistors are introduced in parallel to a circuit, the resulting resistance of the circuit would decrease, this increases the total current of the circuit.

## Does current flow through short circuit?

A short circuit (sometimes abbreviated to short or s/c) is an electrical circuit that allows a current to travel along an unintended path with no or very low electrical impedance. This results in an excessive current flowing through the circuit.
