    Hi All,

    I have just put together a D.C supply on a breadboard, tested & its doing all it should etc..
    I have taken waveforms on my oscilloscope at different points of my circuit as seen in DOC attachment.

    Im now asked to explain all waveforms? Im a bit stuck what to say here..

    So far Ive got:

    #1 Shows a D/c wave taken prior to my rectifier.
    #2 Shows a dirty D/C wave taken without my Capacitor connected.
    #3 Shows the charging & discharging of my capacitor.
    #4 Shows the capacitor achieving full charge,
