What is voltage across A and B?

Capacitor is fully charged to given volt in figure. Then v2 is applied. What can be Vab?

assuming v2 is initially off and the capacitor is at voltage (V+V1), then the voltage Vab = V2 + (V+V1) = V2 + Vdiode

if we assume V > 0, V1 > 0 and V2 > 0, then Vab = V2 + (V + V1) which is always greater than V1, so the diode never turns on.

at least this is what i’m thinking. seems like the problem has a few different cases of operation depending on the values of these voltages.

Vab= (V+V1)+V2=V1-Vdiode

If; (V+V1)+V2 = 9V and

V1-Vdiode= 6V

then; Vab= 9V . Both are connected in parallel.

If; (V+V1)+V2=6V and


then; Vab=9V
