# In Half-wave Rectification, What is the Output Frequency If the Input Frequency is 50 Hz. What is the Output Frequency of a Full-wave Rectifier for the Same Input Frequency. - Physics

Numerical

In half-wave rectification, what is the output frequency if the input frequency is 50 Hz. What is the output frequency of a full-wave rectifier for the same input frequency.

#### Solution

Input frequency = 50 Hz

For a half-wave rectifier, the output frequency is equal to the input frequency.

∴Output frequency = 50 Hz

For a full-wave rectifier, the output frequency is twice the input frequency.

∴Output frequency = 2 × 50 = 100 Hz
