I built a simple half wave rectifier using a center tap transformer and a 1N4007 diode.
I connected the 1N4007 diode to one of the live secondary wires of the transformer and measured the DC voltage across the diode and the neutral wire. It is just showing around 6 volts whereas my output AC voltage from the transformer is around 14 volts.
Also, the voltage drop across the diode is around 5 volts and not 0.7 volts.
I am a beginner in electronics and I can't figure out what's wrong.
