    Hi...

    I have started a new problem to try to solve.

    The circuit is attached and we are supposed to calculate Q-point for both transistors.

    So the first thing I did was to use Thevenin theorem and calculate Vth and Rth for the Voltage divider at the JFET gate.

    I found that Vth = 2V and Rth = 90kΩ

    Then I've used the device Id equation and the gate net equation to find Id and Vgs.

    Assuming that the JFET is working at it's active zone

    Id = Idss(1-(Vgs/Vpoff))^2

    and

    Vth + Rth*Ig + Vgs + Rs*Id = 0

    From the FET's theoretcial characteristics we are know Ig to be 0A, so:
    Rth*Ig = 0V

    So I got 2 solutions from the quadratic Id equation:

    Vgs = -9.26V and Id = 7.26mA

    and

    Vgs = -3.24V and Id = 1.24mA

    Now, I'm supposed to find out Vds to confirm or not the initial assumption. It's here that I have a question.
    Because there is no voltage drop at the MOSFET (transistor at the right side), can I simply write the JFET output net equation as:

    20 = Vds + Rs*Id ????

    Ok, I think I got the final result even without any help from here!
