29.26. Set Up: Let the polarity of the power supply voltage as shown in the figure in the problem be positive. Let clockwise currents be positive. Solve: (a) The I versus V graph is shown in Figure 29.26a. For this orientation of the diode a positive voltage for the power supply corresponds to a positive bias for the diode. Figure 29.26 (b) The I versus V graph is shown in Figure 29.26b. Now a positive applied voltage corresponds to a negative bias for the diode. (c) For a resistor a certain magnitude of applied voltage produces the same magnitude of current, regardless of the polarity of the voltage. The graph of I versus V would be as sketched in Figure 29.26c. (d) (i) In one case a positive voltage is forward bias for the diode and produces a large positive current and in the other case a negative voltage is forward bias for the diode and produces a large negative current. In each case the cur-

Set Up: Solve: (a) This is in the infrared. (b) This is in the infrared. 29.28. Set Up: For an ordinary metallic conductor the resistance increases as T increases. The resistance of an ordinary conductor is not zero at For a superconductor the resistance is zero below the critical temperature, has a nonzero value just above and increases as T increases. Solve: The graphs are sketched in Figures 29.28a and b.
