Often used for reverse voltage protection, a staple for many power, DC to DC step up, and breadboard projects. A diode allows electrical current to flow in one direction -- from the anode to the cathode.
Therefore, the voltage at the anode must be higher than at the cathode for a diode to conduct electrical current. In theory, when the voltage at the cathode is greater than the anode voltage, the diode will not conduct electrical current. In practice, however, the diode conducts a small current under these circumstances. If the voltage differential becomes great enough, the current across the diode will increase and the diode will break down.
Some diodes -- such as the 1N -- will break down at 50 volts or less. The 1N, however, can sustain a peak repetitive reverse voltage of volts. When the voltage at the anode is higher than the cathode voltage, the diode is said to be "forward-biased," since the electrical current is "moving forward. The maximum that the diode can conduct at once is 30 amperes.
However; if the diode is required to conduct that much current at once, the diode will fail in approximately 8. When the maximum allowable consistent current amount is flowing through the diode, the voltage differential between the anode and the cathode is 1. Under these conditions, a 1Nx diode will dissipate 3 watts of power about half of which is waste heat.

Introduction to 1N4007
This post explains the 1N diode pinout, equivalent, specs, datasheet, applications and other useful information about this diode. A 1N is a widely used general purpose diode. It is normally build to use as rectifier in the power supplies section of electronic appliances for converting AC voltage to DC with other filter capacitors. It is a diode of 1Nx series in which there are also other similar diodes from 1N to 1N and the only difference between them is the max repetitive reverse voltage. Moreover it can also be used in any general purpose application where there is need of a general diode. The 1N diode is built for working with high voltages and it can easily handle voltage below V.
1N400x general-purpose diodes
The 1Nx or 1N or 1N  series is a family of popular 1 A general-purpose silicon rectifier diodes commonly used in AC adapters for common household appliances. Its blocking voltage varies from 50 volts 1N to volts 1N These diodes are typically available in the larger DOAD axial package to dissipate heat better. The 1Nx series was originally introduced by Motorola 's Semiconductor Products Division and registered at JEDEC in , as silicon power rectifiers primarily for military and industrial applications. These devices are widely used and recommended for general-purpose use.
