why forward or reverse biasing is done and also explain what is meant by diode and a zener diode?

Asked by Shefali | 9th Dec, 2013, 06:23: PM

Expert Answer:

Forward biasing is a normal connection wherein the forward characteristics of a component can be tested, that is, how does potential vary with current, etc.
 
Reverse biasing is done when one needs the current to flow in a circuit only after a specific potential is reached.
 
Please as separate questions (diode and zener diode) as separate queries.
