Homework Help: Output load voltages in Bridge Rectifier circuit

  1. Dec 3, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    It appears to me that output load voltages in a Bridge Rectifier circuit with capacitor always seem to be greater than that without a capacitor.
    I'm aware that the function of the capacitors connected across output in rectifiers is to remove pulsation of the DC output, so does it mean that a capacitor in place can also mean that the output load voltages are higher?

    2. Relevant equations
    1.Vrms= Vp x 0.707
    2. Vavg= Vp x 0.637

    3. The attempt at a solution
