Given that the diodes are ideal for the circuits a) and b), plot each of their output for the input shown. Label the most positive and most negative levels. Assume CR >> T
The Attempt at a Solution
I am having a really hard time understanding the role of the capacitor since we are not given any values for both capacitors and resistors. I think it charges when Vin is positive and the resistor somehow discharges it when Vin is negative. Is there some equations I can use to know what Vout is?
For the circuit a) if Vin is negative, the diode is reverse bias thus should Vin=Vout?
Also does the graph change depending on where the Vin graph starts? Like if it starts off at +10 instead of -10 wouldn't the output graph be quite different?
Any help would be very much appreciated, I really just want to understand this underlying concept.
