If in a p-n junction, a square input signal of 10 V is applied, as shown, then the output across RL will be
A B C D ## Explanation

Here P-N junction diode rectifies half of the ac wave i.e., acts as half wave rectifier.
During + ve half cycle Diode is forward biased output across RL will be During –ve half cycle Diode is reverse biased output will not obtained.

Which logic gate is represented by the following combination of logic gates ? A
AND
B
NOR
C
OR
D
NAND

## Explanation

The Boolean expression of this arrangement is

Y = $\overline {\overline A + \overline B }$ = $\overline{\overline A} + \overline{\overline B}$ = A.B

Thus, the combination represents AND gate.

In the given figure, a diode D is connected to an external resistance R = 100 $\Omega$ and an e.m.f. of 3.5 V. If the barrier potential developed across the diode is 0.5 V, the current in the citcuit will be A
20 mA
B
35 mA
C
30 mA
D
40 mA

## Explanation

Potential difference across resistance R

= 3.5 – 0.5 = 3.0 V

Current in circuit, I = V/R = 3/100 = 30 mA

The input signal given to a CE amplifier having a voltage gain of 150 is Vi = 2cos(15t + ${\pi \over 3}$). The corresponding output signal will be
A
2cos$\left( {15t + {{5\pi } \over 6}} \right)$
B
300cos$\left( {15t + {{4\pi } \over 3}} \right)$
C
300cos$\left( {15t + {{\pi } \over 3}} \right)$
D
75cos$\left( {15t + {{2\pi } \over 3}} \right)$

## Explanation

Given, Vi = 2cos(15t + ${\pi \over 3}$)

and Voltage gain AV = 150

For CE transistor phase difference between input and output signal is $\pi$ = 180o

Using formula, AV = ${{{V_0}} \over {{V_i}}}$

$\Rightarrow$ V0 = AV $\times$ Vi

= 150$\times$2cos(15t + ${\pi \over 3}$ + $\pi$)

= 300cos$\left( {15t + {{4\pi } \over 3}} \right)$
