Hello all. I'm having some trouble with analyzing this circuit containing diodes.
Our professor told us that we have to trial and error analysis of every possible combination between the two diodes. (i.e. whether one is conducting and the other is cut off etc...)
First question, is there a better, more intuitive way of determining what each diode is actually doing? (i.e. either conducting or cut off)
Secondly, even after my trial and error analysis in this problem, I'm still not sure how to determine which combination is correct? (i.e. what the diodes are actually doing, either conducting or cut off)
Thanks again!
