1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Determining the best resistance for my simple circuit consisting of a diode, battery, and resistor. Doing this using Load- Line Analysis 2. Relevant equations ID = VD - V / R - Given by KVL (I can disregard n-pretend ) 3. The attempt at a solution Here I have attempted using a 1KΩ resistor, obviously too small because I have a voltage drop of about 8.2V across the resistor so then there should be a drop of approx. 1.8 V across the diode. However using the diode equation this gives me way too large of a current.
