Homework Help: Finding output of voltage for certain input voltage diodes

  1. Dec 26, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    We have the circuit in the figure.I have to find the output graphically if the input is Vi=15sinwt.

    2. Relevant equations
    This type of exercise doesnt have any equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Heres the circuit
    For Vi<= -10 the diode is ON and Vo=10
    10<=Vi we have that the diode is OFF and Vi=Vo

    My solution is this one : http://i.imgur.com/ZMUB66j.jpg
    Is it correct ? How can I find the output numerically in exercises like this?

    Which part of the sketch represents your solution? Can you describe the behavior (in words) of the diode and cell? When will it conduct?
