# A diode has a forward bias applied equal to 0.7 V; a 1 mA current flows at room temperature. Calculate the current for forward biases of 0.5 V, 0.6 V, and 0.8 V using the characteristic equation for the diode (called the terminal equation in the textbook) with ideality factor n= 1. 6. Diode equation A diode has a forward bias applied equal to $0.7 \mathrm{~V}$; a $1 \mathrm{~mA}$ current flows at room temperature. Calculate the current for forward biases of $0.5 \mathrm{~V}, 0.6 \mathrm{~V}$, and $0.8 \mathrm{~V}$ using the characteristic equation for the diode (called the terminal equation in the textbook) with ideality factor $n=1$. 7. Real diode limiter For the limiting circuit below, the diode is the same as in question 6. For each of the four $V_{\text {out }}$ values from Q6, calculate the the $V_{\text {in }}$ values. Remember to account for the voltage drop across the resistor. Note that in these circuits with an input and an output, the input can source current but no current flows to the output unless an explicit load resistor is shown.
