    Y the average voltage in half wave rectifier is 0.318 times Vp though the one +ve alteration average is 0.636 times Vp? pls explain

    You have to consider the average over one full period and not only during the positive half waveform.

    oh one full period... So the average of one cycle of a AC is 0.636 right.... ok dude now its clear i thought its only for one alteration because average of complete wave is 0... but now it cleared.. thank u friend :) :)
