Hi All ,
I am Omar from Egypt (aviation engineering)
Can someone please help me with Clipping circuit ,note that i have already read that page and i understand it but i need explanation
check my Page with the problem (specially the part i wrote i need explanation)

Or some one can analyze that circuit in this page and send me the analysis
please note : i am using in this problem Ideal diodes
Thanks in advance

If both diodes do not conduct then the circuit is left with Vi and the resistor, thus Vo=Vi.

Maybe by V2<Vi it means that Vi is more posidtive than V2 and thus D2 is reversed biased.

The input signal (Vi peak-peak) needs to be higher than the clipping level (V1+V2 peak-peak) for any clipping to have an effect.
