Zener Diode

Electricity and Magnetism Level 3


  • Zener diode forward bias 0.7V
  • Zener breakdown region 5V
  • Inductance is 1 mH and resistance is zero

If the switch is open:

  • What is the voltage over resistor R0?

If the switch is closed:

  • The circuit is left for enough time to reach steady state, what will be the measured current passing through R1?

  • Theoretically,‚Äč what current will be passing through the inductor branch?

Answer the questions consecutively.
