Escuti/Masnari 2007 ECE200 – Fall 2007 – Homework 4 Solutions Capacitors and Resistor Circuits (plus Diodes) Page 2 of 12 Circuit 1: a) We assume the diode is ‘off’ and replace it by an open circuit in the equivalent circuit we use to find the voltage across the diode. Since I D =0, I 1 =I 2 =I KVL: 5 ! 3I ! I+3=0 I= 8V 4k " = 2mA KVL: 5 ! 3I !

Circuit 2: a) The diode is flipped, otherwise it is the same circuit. We must remember to define the diode voltage as shown below. V D + ! anode cathode Since the equivalent circuit is the same as above, V D = +1V > 0.7V The diode is ‘on’. The assumption was wrong! Need to re- analyze! b) We note that when the diode is ‘on’, its voltage is 0.7V, D 1 2 I 0 I I ! " ! . KVL 1: 5 ! 3I 1 + 0.7 – 2I D = 0 KVL 2: 3 + 2I D ! 0.7 ! I 2 = 0 KCL: I 1 ! I 2 !

[16 pts total, 4 pts each] The capacitor in the circuit shown below is uncharged prior to closing the switch at t = 0. a. What is the time constant for capacitor charging in seconds? b. How long does it take for the capacitor to reach 6 V after closing the switch? c. What is the capacitor current when the capacitor voltage is 6 V? d.What is the magnitude of the stored charge at that instant? a) 3 6 3 -4 RC=10 100 10 F =10 10 0.1s !
