1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 1a) Use an ideal diode model and find V in both cases. Show your work. (I would assume an ideal diode model means with a "perfect" u-i characteristics?) A diode circuit is as shown: 1b) If V1 = 2.8sin(t), sketch to periods of V1 and V0 in the same graph. Use an idea diode model. 1c) Repeat exercise d with a constant voltage drop model. (here I assume it's a typo, and I should repeat exercise b). 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution First things first, 1a). So, the way I understand a diode, current either goes though, or it doesn't. I'm going to assume, in the first circuit (a), that the current goes through both diodes. What happens then at the point b? Am I going to use the voltage and resistors to calculate currents I and ID2, then the voltage potential "between" ground and D2? I'm not familiar with this type of layout of circuits. Is there a negative potential difference between the point B and past the 5k resistor? Any input on this will be greatly appreciated.
