    Greetings.
    This is not my homework question this question was on my exam few days a go. On picture i posted you can see how i solved the problem. I would like if one of you would tell me if this answer is correct.
    i had to draw a transmission characteristics Vout=f(Vinp).

    Your graph still needs work. The discontinuity that you have is not going to happen. You should look for a seamless transition at the point the diodes enter the forward biased region.

    I just tought about it and i think my calculation is wrong too. I belive the good answer is Vout=[(Vinp-0.7)/2]+0.7. Hmm my english is not perfect so im not sure what you wanted to say about my graph. Could you draw please how the graph should look?
    I spent last few days figuring out answer to this question and my next exam is tomorow so im really out of ideas about solution to this problem.

    That plot agrees with mine.
