2. The problem wants me to find load voltage, load current, load power, diode voltage, diode power, and

**diode current.**I haven't had an issue with any except diode current.

3. I started by finding the thevenin voltage of 8V and thevanin resistance of 1.3k ohms

I found load current by subtracting V

_{TH}and 0.7 and dividing by the sum of R

_{TH}and R

_{L}. (~3.17 mA)

I found load voltage by multiplying I

_{L}and R

_{L}(~3.17 V)

Load power by I

_{L}* V

_{L}(~10 mW)

Diode voltage is 0.7V because of second approx.

Now, how do I find the diode current? My book seems to assume diode current is the same as load current. Why is that?
