Textbook Problem

Technician A says that when a diode is placed in a circuit with the positive side of the circuit connected to the positive side of the diode and the negative side of the circuit connected to the negative side if the diode, the diode is said to have reverse bias. Technician B says that the diodes P material is repelled by the positive charge of the circuit and is pushed toward the N material and that the N material is pushed toward the P. Who is correct?

  1. Technician A

  • Both A and B
  • Technician B
  • Neither A nor B
  • To determine

    Whether Technician A or Technician B is correct.

    Explanation

    A Diode is a semiconductor device that allows the current to flow in only one direction. When the positive side of the circuit is connected to the p side of the diode and negative side is connected to the n side of the diode it is known as forward bias. On the other hand, when the positive side of the circuit is connected to the n side of the diode and negative side is connected to the p side of the diode it is called reversed bias...
