I have the following circuit:

[PLAIN]http://elementdesign.sk/dioda.jpg [Broken]

I would need to calculate the current and voltage through the diode.

I now that I can calculate the current by the following formula:

[tex]I=I_{0}(e^{U/U_{0}}-1)[/tex]

I know that [tex]I_{0}=10^{-17}[/tex] and [tex]U_{0}=20mV[/tex]

I have been looking for another formula to calculate the curent and the voltage through the diode, but I was not able to find anything.

Could anyone please help me out here how to get the I and U for the diode.

Thanks a lot.
