Diodes, supplies, and graphs.

  1. May 27, 2012 #1
    Hello there,
    I have 2 questions:

    1)What's the difference between the load line graph of a circuit having (a DC supply, diode with no internal resistance, and a resistor R) & another circuit having (a DC supply, diode WITH internal resistance, and a resistor R)?

    2)If we have a circuit supplying the diode with DC voltage, let's say of value (E) - can we conclude from that the Vm (Maximum Voltage) if DC source was replaced by AC one (of the form V=Vmsin(ωt)? Can we? :S

    What are your thoughts on this?
    Your question is not phrased sufficiently clearly for my understanding.

    What's not clear about my second question? What exactly?
    And what do you mean by " What are your thoughts on this?"

    Exactly the whole question. Can you please re-phrase it in proper english?
