1. We are considering a step junction at equilibrium(no external voltage applied).
2. The potential variation is shown as negative potential at P region(which is shown as constant) and increasing through the transient region to become positive in the n region.
The Attempt at a Solution
1. As per the equation for potential, the value of potential at the P region should be positive(since Q=positive here) and shown at a higher level than the negative potential in the N region(since Q=negative here).
2.Also the positive potential at P region should drop to a negative value in the transition region next to it(because of the presence of electrons there at equilibrium) and slowly increase to become positive potential as the transient region changes from negative to positive. As the positive region comes to an end the graph should again become negative due to the electrons in the N region.
