## Homework Statement

Determine Vout, the current flowing through R and power power dissipated the Zener diode.

## Homework Equations

Circuit analyzing techniques.

## The Attempt at a Solution

I've done this problem by assuming each diode is off while ignoring the other.

E.g. Applying KVL: -24+VD=0 --> VD=24 (Silicon diode is on and will be replaced with 0.7V voltage source).

Applying KVL again: -24-VDZ --> VDZ=-24 (Zener diode is reverse biased and will be replaced with VZT, which 12V voltage source).

Is this approach correct?
