Textbook Problem

While checking an A/C compressor clutch coil spikesuppressing diode with an ohmmeter, the meter shows infinite resistance when the diode is measured in both directions: Technician A says that the diode is open. Technician B says that all diodes should behave this way until a specified voltage is applied to them. Who is correct?

  1. Technician A

  • Technician B
  • Both A and B
  • Neither A nor B
  • To determine

    Whether Technician A or Technician B is correct.

    Explanation

    A Diode is a semiconductor device that allows the current to flow in only one direction. The current flows only when the diode is forward biased and the current is blocked in the reversed biased condition.

    If infinite resistance appears in ohmmeter on measuring the resistance of a diode in both directio...
