Homework Statement


A diode with reverse saturation current of 1pA and an ideality factor of 1.15 is connected in series with a resistance of 200ohms and connected to a 5V DC supply voltage. Find the current flowing in the diode at a temperature of 290K? How does the current change when a 800ohm resistance is placed in parallel with the diode?
