Homework Help: Electrical Problem

  1. Oct 20, 2009 #1
    Hello all, long time reader, first time poster. Just in need of some help on finding the transfer function of the following diode circuit, and sketching the graph of this transfer function.

    R1=1k, R2 = 4k and R3 = 7k, we want Vo vs Vg.

    The follow on question also invloves finding and sketching the transfer function assuming that Vg is a sinusoidal function, Vg = 10sin(0.1t)

    Thanks for any help

    Welcome to the PF.

    Talk it out. At what positive value of Vo will you start to get some conduction through a diode? What value of source voltage does that correspond to? You need to do the work on this problem...
