The reading of the ammeter for a silicon diode in the given circuit is :-
845610_8673d9d588db445ab1691d05225fc362.png
  1. 11.5 mA
  2. 13.5 mA
  3. 0
  4. 15 mA

A
11.5 mA
B
13.5 mA
C
0
D
15 mA
Solution
Verified by Toppr

Silicon diode is in forward bias.
Hence across diode potential barrier
ΔV=0.7 volts
I=VΔVR=30.7200
=2.3200=11.5mA
