    Hello,
    I am trying to learn about bipolar junction transistor, and i was trying to understand the case in which the emitor and the base are shortened.
    I understand that in this case, the transistor acts as a diode, but when i try to calculate the current that flows through the diode, i get 2 different equations' depending on whether i calculate the collector current or the emitor current. can someone please shed some light on this issue?
    thank you very much in advance'

    Show us the circuit and your equations.

    these are the equations, when you take into consideration that Veb = 0, i get 2 different answers

    I still don't see the circuit.
