Homework Statement



hi guys,
Can someone please help me understand superposition and homogeneity in regards to the following graph.
p-n-junction-diode-v-i-characteristics.jpe

(current voltage characteristic of a diode)

To be honest i dont understand the terms. The exact question im asked is Use two test points on Graph to show if the diode satisfies the properties of superposition and homogeneity.

Unfortunately i dont know what either of those are, can someone elaborate?

Thank you for your time.

I have found that superposition depends on linearity. In this case the relationship does not satisfy the properties of superposition. Can someone confirm? Also would it suffice to take slope with different points and since the slope is not the same I can conclude ita non linear ?
