I think I get the fist part of the question, but I am stuck on getting an expression for the current in terms of voltage for the second situation where we add a resistor.
Thank you for the reply! I do know how to solve the expression for the current through the diode and invert it to get vD. My problem is that I need to get an expression of the current in terms of voltage. Since it is not linear, I am not sure how to do that. I have not used Newton's method to...
Helo,
I am in an electronic course and we just started studying diodes. I am stuck on the following problem:
Place a 100 ohm resistance in series with a diode, and plot current versus voltage across the series combination.
I am also given the following values for the diode:
n = 1, Is =...
Hello! I am trying to write a program that solves the Schrodinger Equation for a particle in an infinite square well. I did a lot of research regarding the methods that could be used to accomplish this. I am writing this program in Matlab. The method I am using is called the Shooting Method. In...
I think I am starting to understand where you are coming from. Initially, I thought that current would not go through the parallel piece of wire because there is no voltage drop there, but it would go to the resistor because there there is a voltage drop and the current could flow. I have always...
So, I think that I am misunderstanding the problem. The arrow on the switch in the diagram means that the switch was closed for a long time and then it was opened at t=0s. If this is the case, then would that not mean that the capacitor was charged at t <= 0?
Thanks you for the quick reply! Oh! I I did not think of it this way. My answer would be "No, it would not." That raises another question that might be related to a fundamental piece of information that I don't know. Current would also not flow if there was no change in voltage, which the...

Thank you very much! Sorry for the late reply, but I had to sleep on it. It worked perfectly fine! I was inventing my own incorrect rules for calculus, and that did not work very well!
P.S. I was wondering how you were able to type those derivatives very clearly. It is much more clear than...
I do have that in my solution and it leads to the earlier reply I posted. It also leads to the correct first term of the right answer. Is the following correct?
-csc(θ)(d/dθ)[y] = (cscθ)^2(d^2y/dθ^2)
I do have that in my solution and it leads to the earlier reply I posted. It also leads to the correct first term of the right answer. Is the following correct?
-csc(θ)(d/dθ)[y] = (cscθ)^2(d^2y/dθ^2)
Thanks for your reply! Here is my calculation for (1-x^2)y'':
(d^2y/dx^2) = (d^2y/dθ^2)(1-x^2)^(-1) = (d^2y/dθ^2)(1-(cosθ)^2)^(-1)
(1-x^2)y'' = (1-(cosθ)^2)(d^2y/dθ^2)(1-(cosθ)^2)^(-1) = (d^2y/dθ^2)
Thank you very much for your reply! I have spend many an hour trying to figure out where the 2 goes, but that was to to avail. I have the following:
(dy/dx)=(dy/dθ)(-1/sqrt (1-x^2))=(dy/dθ)(-1)(sin(θ))^(-1)
Can you please direct me to where I went wrong on the above statement?
Thanks!

Now, for B its period is the same as the period of the earth. This mean that the same method will apply, but I would have to use 24 86400 seconds for the period in my formula. Does that sound okay? I used a solar system mobile that my girlfriend got me so I could wrap my head around it. I wonder...
Sorry for not being very clear. I meant that the satellite must have circled the Earth 1.5 times for it to satisfy the information of when it was observed the second time. When it was spotted the first time in situation A, it was not seen in the sky until 12 hours later. This means that the...
So, after completing half a period on earth, the satellite appears again. Does that mean that the satellite completed 1.5 times the period of the earth?
A geosynchronous orbit is an orbit in which the satellite is locked over one place relative to the earth. The Earth and the satellite would have the same orbital velocity. On a second thought, I don't see a lot of evidence to support the geosynchronous orbit hypothesis. They may have fast...
Well, from the description in the problem, I thought that they were both geosynchronous satellites. If so, would not that make them have the same period? The only difference would be that one is going in the direction of the Earth's rotation and the other is going in the opposite direction.
