    If the diode is in the right direction, then the current will flow through it, if not, it won't, correct?

    And normally, a diode works this way, but in the drawing above, the current would technically not flow in the diode.. |dw:1343337901676:dw|

    Keep in mind that "conventional current" is reverse to what the electrons actually do. :-)

    Diodes are like one-way valves in a water pipeline system. They put up extreme resistance if you go the wrong way.

    Question for you @zepp, do you know which charges the anode and cathode has, respectively?

    "conventional current" = the direction of positive charge flowing around a circuit

    Still confused @zepp ? Look at page 3 of this document ;-) http://ww1.microchip.com/downloads/en/appnotes/00905a.pdf

    |dw:1343339611472:dw| So the 'real current' flows like this?
