### Current in Zener diode(Zener current) Formula

zener_current = (Initial Zener Voltage-Final Zener Voltage)/Resistance
Iz = (Vz-Vf)/R

## Which way does current flow through a Zener diode?

A Zener diode is a silicon semiconductor device that permits current to flow in either a forward or reverse direction. The diode consists of a special, heavily doped p-n junction, designed to conduct in the reverse direction when a certain specified voltage is reached.

## Why is there sudden increase in current in Zener diode?

When Zener diode is connected in reverse bias, as applied voltage reaches at Zener breakdown voltage, due to rupture of bonds there is a sudden increase in current in Zener diode.
