    Ok, there are a few calculations on this problem that I am having difficulty with. This is a past homework assignment which is why the answers are filled in. They are all correct.

    Anyways I approached the problem in this manner:

    V secondary peak = V2/ .707

    The voltage drop across RL is ZZT


    VC1P= V2P - Both forward biased diode drops.

    VC1 P-P (Ripple) = IDC / (2f * C)

    VRS= Vc1 dc - Vzt

    IRS= VRS /RS

    The three that I am having trouble with are: Vc1-dc , IZ, and VRL p-p (Ripple)

    Can anyone help me out?

    Now all I need to know its how to find the value of. Vc-dc
