Current in Half Wave Rectifier

Half wave Rectifier Circuit Image

In this circuit a AC voltage source of 110V 50Hz sine wave is supplied to the diode and the diode rectifies the signal to DC.

If we probe across Load R1 for Voltage, we would get half-wave and the -ve cycle of the voltage is clipped out by the diode.

Negative cycle of  the Current  through the load is also clipped by the diode.
