Remember, we must accomplish each of the five steps: Step 1: ASSUME that both D 1 and D 2 are “on” (might as well!). Step 2: ENFORCE the equalities 1 2 0 D D i i v v = = , by replacing each ideal diode with a short circuit. 2 i D v + 2 i D i 10.0 V 1 i D v + 1 i D i -10.0 V R 1 =10K R 2 =5K

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
