I have a diode with a resistor in parallel(R2), but also diode resistor circuit has a resistor in series with it(R1). I have uploaded a drawing as well but I think it takes a bit of time for them to be authorised.
The values of the circuit are
Vs = 20v
R1 = 3kΩ
R2 = 470Ω
Diode = Has a Volt drop of 2v
I've found the formula VoVd/Rl = I for a diode in series in a resistor but am not sure how this relates if the diode also has resistor in parallel with it. I'm guessing from what I've read that the diode does not have a resistance as such but only 'consumes' 2v, so can I use 18v along with the resistance in the remainder of the circuit to calculate It ? Or am I heading down the wrong path entirely. This is my second night on this question so could really do with some help. Thankyou
