1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Find the V and I in the circuit shown below: 2. Relevant equations D1 or 2 is off=short circuit D1 or 2 is on=open circuit 3. The attempt at a solution So, my confusion lies with deciding the on and offs of D1 and D2 . My assumption is that both of them are on and that is due to them in forward bias. However, when I looked online, D2 was off and D1 was on. Based on how the current is going into D2, how is D2 off? Any help is much appreciated!
