## Homework Statement

The question I have been set is "Calculate the current in a diode when the forward voltage is 0.62V and the reverse saturation current is 10pa."

## Homework Equations

I really have no idea how to begin solving this one. The only equation that I have been taught (aside from Ohm's Law) is 'the Ideal Diode Equation' - "I= Is [e qv/kt - 1]". However, I do not know what the 'e' in this equation represents and so do not know how to feed the numbers into the equation.

## The Attempt at a Solution

As above, I'm completely confused here.

Many thanks for your time and replies!
