(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Q:-Find the current through the resistance R in the figure:-

, if the value of R is:-

a.12Ω

b.48Ω.

Assume resistance offered by diode is 0 in forward bias and ∞ in reverse bias.

2. Relevant equations

Ohms Law:-

V=Ri

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried using kirchoff's law but we don't know its in reverse bias or forward.

Then I imagined the circuit without the diode wire so as to calculate the potential drop b/w the ends(this would tell whether its Forward bias or reverse) but realized that resistance would change if we connect the wire again? Plz help!
